Causes Of Cold Allergies In Adults?
HealthReplies.com, I’m a 37-year-old female. Lately since this rainy season I have a cold allergy, usually occurs when the air temperature starts to drop like after sunset. So far I have let it go its way; if it feels very disturbing, I take a type of CTM drug. I have experienced this cold allergy at the age of 13-20 years, then completely disappeared in the following years. It seems strange when experiencing it again after a dozen years passed, especially if from u003ca href = “https: //www.HealthReplies.com/allergy-cold ” u003earticles in HealthReplies.com u003c / a u003 child. Question: What do I need to do or find out more about this condition? If you need to see a doctor, should you see a general practitioner or a particular specialist? thanks.
Hello Theresia, thank you for asking.
Allergies are indeed more often detected since childhood. Allergy is generally closely related to a person's genetics. Family history of a biological who also has an allergy, usually a risk factor. However, allergies can occur as adults. In other cases, the event may be as you have experienced, the allergies had disappeared, then returned later. The causes also vary, can be in the form of food, chemicals, dust, smoke, temperature, and so on.
The allergic mechanism involves the release of histamine by mast cells. Sometimes, after repeated exposure due to allergens, mast cells will trigger excessive allergic expenditure. The exact mechanism is unclear, but allergies in adults are likely to enter into a slow type of allergy. In addition, other factors, such as hormonal balance, psychological stress, or the consumption of certain drugs and supplements, may contribute to the onset of allergies.
You can start going to a general practitioner. If deemed necessary, the doctor will refer to a dermatologist for an allergy test. The best allergy management is of course to avoid triggers. But if it cannot be avoided, then antihistamine drugs must always be available. Regular exercise is also expected to help optimize the immune system.
Thus my explanation, hopefully enough help. Regards.
