Why Have You Been Drinking Cetirizine For A Few Days, Your Allergies Have Not Healed?
I have allergies. Then I took the medicine for cetirizine a few days missing. But, when the medicine runs out the allergies appear again.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Allergy is a hypersensitivity reaction, or excessive body response to certain stimuli that normally do not require an excessive immune response. Stimulation or stimulation in medical terms is called allergens, and can be in various forms, such as certain foods (shrimp, eggs, crabs), weather (cold, heat), small particles (dust, pollen, cat hair), or certain substances (iron, copper, etc.). Symptoms of allergies vary, from itching, the appearance of reddish bumps, to shortness of breath, impaired circulation, to decreased consciousness and death.
Until now, there has not been found a therapy that can cure allergies in full, so that symptoms that arise such as itching, swelling, redness, spasms, etc. can reappear when patients are exposed to allergens again. Therefore, the first process in managing allergies is to identify allergens or things that trigger allergies in you. Because allergic reactions often recur and disappear, patients or their families can usually conclude or see the same pattern of symptoms, to identify the allergens that cause them. Are the symptoms arise every cold weather, every dust, every after eating eggs, and others.
After identifying allergens, then the patient can prevent allergies, for example by using a mask in allergic conditions of dust and pollen, using a layered jacket on cold allergies or by avoiding consumption of certain foods. If already exposed to an allergic reaction, anti-allergic drugs can be given. But keep in mind that these anti-allergic drugs only relieve allergic reactions, but do not cure allergies definitively. In addition, because its use can cause side effects, it is recommended to only consume allergy medications with a doctor's recommendation or prescription.
If you feel confused about allergens or things that trigger allergies to you, you can see a dermatologist so you can do an allergy test. In this test, several substances that often trigger allergies in your skin will be tested, and see the reactions that occur.
Because you do not describe your symptoms in detail, keep in mind that the condition you are experiencing is not necessarily an allergic reaction. Symptoms of itching, can be caused by a bacterial or fungal infection on the skin, or symptoms of redness can be caused by inflammation. To ensure your condition, do not hesitate to consult a doctor.
The danger signs that you need to be aware of are if the allergic reaction is getting worse and starts to cause breathing problems (shortness of breath), heart palpitations, and decreased consciousness.
Thus information from me, hopefully can help.
