Allergy affects about a third of the world's population. Over the past 20 years, the prevalence of allergies has doubled. This is due to many factors: the deterioration of the environmental situation, a change in the nature of food, lifestyle, with the appearance of new allergens, with stress, with a poor climate inside residential and workrooms, etc.
Causes of Allergies
In most cases, allergies occur in contact with allergens - house dust mites, animal dander and dander, plant pollen, microorganisms, mold, certain foods, insect bites.
Other factors, such as pungent odors, colds, exercise, cold air, emotions, can cause a reaction similar to an allergic one, but the cause of which is hypersensitivity (hyperreactivity) of the airways caused before this contact with the allergen.
In most cases, atopic dermatitis occurs first in early childhood: in 60-70% of children, the symptoms of the disease appear in the first year of life. Acquiring a chronic course, the disease retains its clinical signs for many years. In 80% of children with atopic dermatitis in early childhood, they subsequently develop a respiratory allergy.
In most cases, atopic dermatitis is combined with respiratory allergies: bronchial asthma and allergic rhinitis.
