How to stand the allergy

In spring when the trees and plants are in blossom many Ukrainians suffer from hayfever (seasonal allergic rhinoconjuctivitis). Rhinitis, conjunctivitis, dermatitis, tiredness, irritability, tickling in the throat, cough, sometimes, asthmatic fits are the main symptoms of the disease.

During seasonal exacerbation in most of the diseased the cross allergy manifests itself. Supposing, one suffers from hayfever with reaction to birch pollen (from April till May), one will have the cross reaction to apple, carrot, filbert and peach. Having reaction to cereals blossoming one will have the cross reaction to sorrel and cereals. Having reaction to wormwood one will have the cross reaction to citrus, sunflower seeds and honey.

At present almost 20% of Earth inhabitants suffer from the allergic reactions. With every 10 years the number of allergy sufferers doubles.

If one does not cure the allergic manifestations and does not neutralize the allergen effect (allergy-invoking substance), the consequences may be severe starting from bronchial asthma and ending with Quincke’s edema, anaphylactic shock.

Farmak’s products portfolio includes a line of medicines that could help to fight off the allergy.

Probiotics favourably effect on the immunity of mucous membranes, in particular, intestine that plays an important role in formation of the immune system and reduces the probability of allergic disease manifestations.

As far as 80% of immune cells are formed in intestine it is extremely important to preserve microflora balance.
