About Allergy | THYROIDECTOMY SURGEON IN PORUR | Dr Sanjeev Mohanty

1) Allergy is easily treated Yes! the mainstay of allergy treatment is with antihistamines and steroids, either as sprays, inhalers, creams or tablets.

2) Allergy can cause asthma and loss of sense of taste. Yes! allergy is one of the main causes of asthma, and in these patients polyps can appear in the nose, which block the passage of inhaled air to the smell receptors - so sense of smell is lost, and with that the sense of taste also.

3) Mouth tingling and swelling when eating can be caused by birch pollen allergy?Yes! this is oral allergy syndrome, and occurs particularly when birch allergy sufferers eat food containing hazelnut - as it cross reacts with the birch pollen antibody. People often mistake this for anaphylaxis - but it's not.

4) Allergy is genetic - you can inherit it Yes! there is an increased incidence of allergy in the children of allergic parents.

5) Allergy can make you blind?Yes! severe atopic keratoconjunctivitis, which is an allergic eye disease, can lead to blindness.
