Mold allergy

WHAT IS MOLD DANGEROUS?

Another serious causative agent of allergies is wall fungus. Mold occurs during the period of sporulation of fungi. And this period is a particular danger for those whose body reacts aggressively to such stimuli.

In the modern world, doctors have discovered about twenty types of fungi that give rise to mold, and all of them have been identified as dangerous allergens.

These bacteria pose a serious threat to the human body. Mold spores are also found in household dust and are inhaled. The favorite “weather” of the parasite is humidity, heat and lack of air circulation. This dangerous allergen can cause choking attacks and severe coughing. Such dangerous manifestations ominously echo the symptoms of bronchial asthma. Due to the long-term effect of fungal spores on the human body, increased chronic fatigue, dark circles under the eyes can be observed. If left untreated, it can cause mycoses, aspergillosis and cardiovascular pathologies [4].

Therefore, carefully monitor the walls and nooks and crannies. Pay special attention to the bathrooms and kitchen. Do not dry clothes and linen in a room that is not ventilated. For people who are sensitive to wall fungus, I still recommend not drying washed clothes in the house. Use the balcony or outdoor places to dry. Install an electric dryer in the bathroom.

HOW TO GET RID OF MOLD

If you still notice unpleasant black spots on the walls, then try effective methods of getting rid of:

  • Bleach or bleach solution (1 part bleach to 3 parts water)
  • Saturated solution of laundry soap;
  • Baking soda with vinegar (apply baking soda to plaque, treat with vinegar on top)
  • Hydrogen peroxide
  • Ammonia (dilute in half with water);
  • A solution of soda (a teaspoon per glass of water).

In building markets, you can find ready-made mixtures for removing mold. Pay attention to the fact that such a tool contains boron compounds in its composition, then it is considered effective.

Do not use a hair dryer or quartz blower , this will only blow up the particles, but will not destroy the structure of the bacteria.

ALLERGY TO DUST AND MOLD IN CHILDREN

Children are most often prone to various types of allergies. The symptoms listed below indicate that your child has an allergy.

  • panting
  • Coughing fits
  • Wheezing when breathing
  • sneezing
  • lacrimation
  • Nose bleed
  • Loud wheezing, especially during sleep
  • Frequent colds
  • Cough that does not respond to traditional methods [2,3]

Therefore, keep your home very clean to prevent such symptoms.

• Do wet cleaning twice a week throughout the house, in the children’s room most often, if possible

• Use a powerful vacuum cleaner with special filters that trap allergens

• Ventilate your home daily

• Dry all the soft parts of the interior and bed in the sun and frosty air

We have listed the steps to help alleviate and prevent symptoms of household allergies, and in the case of children, use in addition:

• Preventive conversations on the topic “how allergies affect my body.” Explain to the child that allergies lead to complex consequences, so it is better to report health problems in advance.

• Visit doctor. Specialists in this field are allergists, immunologists, mycologists.

TREATMENT AND RELIEF OF ALLERGIES

In modern medicine, there are many ways to treat allergic manifestations.

Depending on the severity, this may be:

• The use of special creams, ointments, solutions for the treatment of skin rashes.

• Use of therapeutic aerosols for injection into the respiratory tract.

• Use of saline solutions to wash and clean the sinuses.

• The use of antihistamines and hormonal drugs.

• Use of nose filters.

• Also, in severe manifestations, allergen-specific immunotherapy is used. (Gradual introduction into the patient’s body of increasing doses of the extract of the allergen to which the patient has hypersensitivity and which is responsible for the clinical manifestations of the disease, that is, the cause of the disease).

Take care of the allergy sufferer’s diet. It should be easy and useful. Pay special attention to food preparation. Choose quality products. Dress salads with fresh oils. Steam, bake, boil. Stick to a hypoallergenic diet. Exclude from the diet fried, spicy, spices, seasonings, fatty meats, sweets, fresh milk, and products containing it, even if you do not have a food allergy.

    Non-traditional methods of treatment, especially taking preparations based on honey, herbs can only worsen the situation. Folk tales say that you can be treated with tinctures of herbs, decoctions of leaves. But if we analyze most of the recipes, it turns out that almost all the components of such “drugs” are powerful allergens in themselves. Therefore, it is better to contact a qualified specialist and avoid “people’s advice”.

To establish a diagnosis and prescribe treatment, be sure to consult a doctor.
