Allergy Respite Kit: Contrivance Against Allergy

Be prepared to brawl allergy anytime with your “allergy respite kit”! Always keep it with you. What to be included in it? I am here with some suggestions.

Inhaler or Bronchodilators

Going to a trip with your family and suddenly attacked by asthma! Don’t worry! Just take out bronchodilator from your kit and a couple of puffs will make you alright. Enjoy your journey!

Antihistamines

Our immune system liberates some histamine, as a result of natural resistance. This causes swelling, running of nose, etc. Antihistamines work against these histamines. Always keep Certirizine, Benadryl, Allegra  Clarinex and other prescribed antihistamines in your kit.

Precautions:

Giddiness, dry mouth, blurred vision and vomiting are some of the outcomes of using antihistamines. So, before using it, follow the given below precautions:

  • Don’t take it while working on heavy machines or driving. Intake it before going to bed.
  • If you are suffering from high blood pressure, heart disease, liver or kidney diseases, consult your doctor, before using it.

Decongestants
