Solution To Overcome The Drug Allergy?
Hello doctor. My mother has experienced an allergic reaction. For approximately 3 months. Caused by the use of drugs. Already opnam 3 times. Every 2 Weeks at home. Allergies re-emerge. Already done various tests. Such as biopsy blood tests etc. All is normal. It’s just the result of IGE allergy. 6000. My question is whether there are other causes of this allergy and what should be avoided by my mother in undergoing her days besides consuming allergic drugs. Like maintaining a diet?
Hello Muhammad Alfian, Thank you for the question.
Allergic reactions occur because of an immune system error in interpreting things that are actually not harmful to the body into something that is dangerous so that the immune system reacts by releasing histamine and a number of inflammatory substances. These substances play a role in the emergence of symptoms experienced by patients. Symptoms experienced by sufferers can vary from mild to severe and life-threatening symptoms. Symptoms that can appear can be biduran, sneezing, runny nose, swollen nata, watery eyes, itchy eyes, swollen lips, itchy lips, difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing, abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, and palpitations. Everyone has different triggers. The following are some of the things that can trigger allergic reactions: high-protein foods and drinks (for example seafood, eggs, milk), dust, animal hair, pollen, mites, hot air, cold air, insect bites, drugs (antibiotics , non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), and certain chemicals / substances such as perfume, soap, shampoo or latex ingredients.
The main treatment for allergic reactions is to avoid triggers. To find out what things that trigger an allergic reaction in your mother requires further examination in the form of an allergy test which can be a blood test, skin prick test, patch test, or elimination test. After knowing the things that can trigger an allergic reaction in your mother, then your mother must avoid these things. Maintaining a diet is only recommended for those who have allergies to certain foods. The best step you can take is to consult a specialist in internal medicine with allergies and immunology subspecialty. The doctor will ask about your mother's complaints and carry out further checks on your mother to find the cause. Further treatment will be given by a doctor according to your mother's condition.
Please advise your mother to try to pay attention to what might trigger allergic symptoms and avoid them. Also encourage your mother to maintain the cleanliness of the house and bed. Because the cause is not known with certainty, your mother can avoid consuming high-protein foods and drinks for a while until the results of allergy tests give clearer results.
I hope this helps.
