Allergy, Pollen Allergic, Home Remedies of Allergies and Sneezing


Home Remedies Of Allergy


In this article you will know about Allergy, Home Remedies of Sneezing and allergies, Hay Fever, Allergy, Pollen allergy, Food allergy etc. In my childhood I suffered from acute allergy. After visiting many doctors and hospitals I got no permanent cure. One day a renowned doctor told me that “Allergy Bhagwan Ki Marji means Allergy is God’s Wish”, there is no cure of allergy. You have to study, diagnose and cure it yourself by avoiding allergens and improving your immunity. So I studied everything about allergies and today I am living a healthy life due to some home remedies which today I am going to share with everyone so that some people at least get benefit from these remedies.




Allergy, Pollen Allergic, Home Remedies of Allergies and Sneezing




A condition in which the immune system reacts abnormally to a foreign substance is known as allergy. There may be thousands of reasons for allergies. Substances that often cause allergic reactions are


  • Dust mites
  • Pollen
  • Mold spores
  • Pet dander
  • Food
  • Medicines
  • Insect stings
  • Milk
  • Eggs


Normally, our immune system fights against germs. It is our body's defence system. In most allergic reactions, however, it is responding to an alarm for foreign substance attack in our body. A substance that is an allergen for one person may not be for another, every individual immune system reacts differently. The risk of developing allergies is increased if other family members suffer from allergy or asthma.

Allergies can cause a variety of symptoms such as a runny nose, itching, rashes, sneezing, swelling, or asthma. Allergies can range from minor to severe. Treatments include medicines, allergy shots, and avoiding the substances that cause the reactions.


When allergens are breathed in, the release of histamine causes the lining of your nose to produce lots of mucus and to become swollen and inflamed. It causes our nose to run and itch and violent continuous sneezing may occur. Your eyes may also start to water and you may get a sore throat. Asthma attack can occur due to allergy. Foods which are most commonly associated with allergy include peanuts, seafood, dairy products and eggs. Cow's milk allergy in infants may occur and can cause eczema, asthma, colic and stomach upset. Some people cannot digest lactose (milk sugar). This intolerance to lactose also causes stomach upsets, but must not be confused with allergy.

Skin problems such as eczema, dry, red, itchy skin and urticaria (also known as hives) often occur. Hives are white itchy bumps which look and feel like insect bites. Food may be a factor in some cases of hives and eczema. We will post Skin allergies article separately as it itself is a deep topic to discuss


Prevention

Allergy is not a disease it is a condition developed due to immune system action. There is no proper guaranteed treatment of allergy in allopath. Prevention is real cure of allergy. Preventing allergic reactions depends on the type of allergy you have. General measures include the following:

Avoid Allergy triggers- Keep in mind that even if you're treating your allergy symptoms, try to avoid triggers. If, for example, you're allergic to dust or pollen, stay inside with windows and doors closed when pollen or dust is high. If you're allergic to particular food than avoid that food in your diet.

Note your symptoms- When trying to identify what causes or worsens your allergic symptoms, track your activities and what you eat, when symptoms occur and what seems to help. This may help you and your hospital/doctor identify triggers and treat them accordingly.


Medications used to treat allergies include antihistamines which block histamine release from mast cells, reducing symptoms. Non-sedating antihistamine tablets rarely cause drowsiness and are available from pharmacies without a prescription. Antihistamine nasal and eye sprays can also be used. Cetrizine, Levo cetrizine are some medicines used to get relief from allergy.


Homeopathic medicines which are helpful in allergy and sneezing includes Bio Combination 6, R49 drops, Arsenicum Album, Allium Cepa etc. It depends on person to person according to case history.

Home Remedies For Burn and First Aid For Burns

How To Treat Minor Burns

Home Remedies For Burn and First Aid For Burns, best treatment for burns everything is available in this article


Home Remedies For Burn and First Aid For Burns



Fire and hot things in any form can cause burns which may be minor or major but burns are always painful. After reading this full article you will know how to treat minor burns easily.


Keep the burnt area under cool water for at least 5 minutes.
Blisters can form on your skin by burning. Do not prick them. An open blister can easily get infected and become really painful and serious.


Apply anti biotic ointment or Aloe vera gel over the burnt area. Cover the burn lightly with a gauze bandage.


A cool compress or clean wet cloth placed over the burn area really helps relieve pain and swelling. You can apply the compress in 5- to 10 minute intervals. Try not to use excessively cold compresses because they may irritate the burn more.


Honey just got sweeter. Apart from its delicious taste, honey may help heal a minor burn when applied topically. Honey is an anti-inflammatory and naturally anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.


Do your best to avoid exposing the burn to direct sunlight. The burned skin will be very sensitive to the sun. Keep it covered with clothing.


These common home burn remedies should be avoided:

Don’t use butter on a burn. There’s little to no evidence supporting the effectiveness of butter as a burn remedy. It may actually make your burn more painful. Butter retains heat and also may be harboring harmful bacteria that can infect the burned skin.


Coconut oil does not heal everything. For the same reason why you shouldn’t apply butter to your burns, oils, such as coconut oil, olive oil, and cooking oils, hold heat in and can even cause the skin to continue to burn.


Never apply toothpaste to a burn. This is another remedy with no evidence to back it up. Toothpaste could irritate the burn and create a more favorable environment for infection. So avoid it.


Third-degree burns should never be treated at home. They carry the risk of serious complications, including infections, blood loss, and shock. Often referred to as a “full-thickness burn,” a third-degree burn reaches underlying tissues and can even damage the nerves.


Burns caused by an electrical shock are also too risky for home treatment. These burns often reach layers under the skin and can even cause damage to internal tissues. The internal damage may be worse than you expect. Don’t take your chances and consult doctor immediately.


So whenever there is a burn to your near or dear one follow these home remedies but for serious or major burns contact nearest hospital, doctor or health centre.

Dog Bite, First Aid For Animal Bite


Animal & Insect Bites

Dog Bite, First Aid For Animal Bite, Dog Bite Remedy and  Animal bites remedies are covered in this article.

Dog Bite First Aid For Animal Bite

Animal or insect  bite can be very painful. So what should we do when an insect or animal bites or scratches a person. Turmeric paste is always helpful and antiseptic in such bites and scratches for immediate relief.

    Wash the wound immediately with running water and anti bacterial soap Apply an antiseptic lotion on the bite area of the body and cover with a clean cloth. Dogs or monkeys bite can cause dangerous disease known as rabies. So visit to a learned doctor to get anti rabies vaccination.

Snakebite-

All snakes in the world are not dangerous and poisonous. But bite of a poisonous snake may be very dangerous. If the person gets treatment immediately he can be treated. If a person is bitten by a snake, keep the person calm and let him sit and relax. Keep the affected limb below the heart level to reduce the flow of poison. Bandage the affected limb by a bandage or cloth with a tight knot but not too much tight. Never try to suck out the poison by mouth as seen in some movies. It can be dangerous.



Dog Bite-

Dogs are our best friends, but dogs are animals and they can bite. In Although pet dog or strange dogs can bite, most of the time people are actually bitten by a dog they know, which could be a friend's dog or even the family pet.
How to prevent dog bites-
  • Always stay away from any dogs you don't know.
  • Never leave young children alone with a dog especially an unfamiliar one. It can be dangerous to you.
  • Never play with any dog that is eating or feeding her puppies. Whenever you approach a dog, do slowly, and give the dog the chance to approach you.
  • If a dog becomes aggressive, do not run away or scream. Stay calm, move slowly, and don't make eye contact with the dog.

Cat Bite-

Cat is a common cute pet in many houses. Cat’s bites are common injuries, especially in children. Treating a cat bite should always start with the safety including the patient and the rescuer.
The following steps may be taken at the place wherever the bite occurred. As for all animal bites, you should always consult with a qualified physician right away to confirm if further action is needed. All animal bites carry an increased risk for infection. 

Steps that should be taken

1.   Secure the cat or the patient, or both. Move one away from the other. If the cat's known owner is around, tell him to secure the cat. If not, move the patient to a safe location. Cats may bite or scratch if frightened or their kittens are threatened, so leave them alone. Don't start any treatment until there is a reasonable expectation that the cat won't attack again.

2. Practice precautions and wear protection in the hands if available.

3.  First control the bleeding by using direct pressure and elevation. Avoid using a tight bandage unless there is severe bleeding that cannot be controlled any other way. That's unlikely unless the cat is a mountain lion. In the event that direct pressure cannot be maintained for an extended amount of time, direct pressure can be achieved using a dressing.

.                4.  Once the bleeding is controlled, clean wound with soap and warm water            and an antiseptic soap.

5. Cover the wound with a clean, dry dressing. You can put antibiotic ointment on the bite before covering, but that is not absolutely necessary. These bites  and scratches can lead to infection, however. Watch for these signs of infection:

1.   Redness

2.   Swelling

3.   Heat

4.   Pus

·   Consult your doctor. The cut may need stitches. Since they are often deep, cat bites and scratches are of particular concern for infection. Again, regardless of how severe you think the bite is, always consult a physician right away.

·    Wounds on the face or hands should always be evaluated by a doctor because of the likelihood of scarring and potential loss of function.

·    Any unidentified cat runs the risk of carrying rabies. If the cat cannot be identified and the owner cannot show proof of rabies vaccination, the patient must seek medical attention. Rabies is always fatal to humans if not treated.

So it is clear that we all love pets and we should love them but we should always take care of ourselves and children from animal bites or scratches. Always consult a doctor whenever you get an animal bite or scratch.
