Doctors warn of consequences of self-treating allergies 13:04

If you are experiencing seasonal allergy symptoms, you should definitely seek help from a doctor. Antihistamines should be taken strictly as prescribed; Self-medication can lead to more serious health problems. warned Director of the Scientific Information Center on Prevention and Treatment of Viral Infections, immunologist-allergist Georgy Vikulov, in a conversation with NSN.

The doctor stated that today in Russia more than 14 million people, that is, about 10% of the total population, suffer from allergic rhinitis, and these are very serious indicators. At the same time, in his opinion, most people do not seek medical help and do not self-medicate.

“Sane patients are given individual medical advice, not craft advice. It is important not to self-medicate, as this can lead to an error in diagnosis,” the doctor emphasized.

Both individual and general recommendations are available for allergy sufferers. Among the latter, Vikulov noted pre-season prevention, air purification, as well as mandatory consultation with an allergist and the choice of the right medications.

Talking about the upcoming poplar fluff season, Vikulov emphasized that this is not a source of allergies in itself, so cutting down trees will not solve the problem. The expert explained that the allergy is triggered by grain pollen settling on the feathers. The allergist concluded that even without poplar, it would still cause allergies, and these mostly manifest as runny nose, rhinitis, conjunctivitis, and in some cases, pollen bronchial asthma.

Doctors before appreciated The idea of ​​allowing people with allergies to work remotely.
