Vitaly Holdin, chief independent psychiatrist-narcologist of the Ministry of Health of the Moscow region, spoke about the effects of alcohol and tobacco on the body of allergy sufferers in the spring. Addictions complicate allergy symptoms and can lead to serious complications.
The spring season for most allergy sufferers is the most difficult period. In the spring, the active flowering of plants begins, and people with pollen allergies are subject to a large number of irritants. During this period, the doctor recommends people with allergies to stop drinking alcohol and smoking.
Alcohol exacerbates allergy symptoms because most of these drinks contain histamines – products of alcoholic fermentation and sulfites – preservatives that inhibit the growth of microorganisms and fungi.
In people with asthma, sulfites can cause a severe attack.
The use of tobacco products also negatively affects the body of an allergic person, causing complications in the form of rhinitis and dermatitis. About this doctor said NEWS.ru portal.
According to the doctor, during the flowering season, you should take all the medicines prescribed by the doctor, observe hand and face hygiene, and keep the house clean.
