How to Recognize and Treat Allergies in Children and Adults: Recommendations from Doctor Home Visit

Allergies are a common condition that can affect both children and adults. In Spain, with its diverse climate and nature, allergic reactions can occur in both tourists and locals at any time of the year. Doctor Home Visit, providing home doctor visits and telemedicine services in Spain, shares useful information on how to recognize and treat allergies and how our company can help you in these situations.

What is an Allergy?

An allergy is an immune system reaction to substances that are typically harmless to most people. These substances, called allergens, can include pollen, dust, mold, pet dander, food, insect stings, and even medications.

Symptoms of Allergies

Allergy symptoms can range from mild to severe and include:

  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Sneezing
  • Watery and itchy eyes
  • Skin rashes and itching
  • Swelling of the lips, tongue, or face
  • Difficulty breathing and coughing
  • Anaphylactic shock (in rare cases)

It is important to recognize allergy symptoms in time to prevent more serious reactions.

Allergies in Children

Children are especially prone to allergies as their immune systems are not fully developed. The most common allergies in children include food allergies, allergic rhinitis, and eczema. Parents should be particularly attentive to symptoms such as skin rashes, breathing or digestive problems, and seek medical help immediately.

Allergies in Adults

Adults can develop allergies at any time, even if they have not had them previously. Allergic reactions in adults can be caused by both external allergens (such as pollen) and internal ones (such as food allergies). Allergies often occur seasonally, associated with plant blooming and increased pollen concentrations in the air.

Diagnosing Allergies

To accurately diagnose allergies, it is necessary to see a doctor. Specialists at Doctor Home Visit can perform the following procedures:

  • Skin tests: identifying skin reactions to various allergens.
  • Blood tests: measuring the level of antibodies to specific allergens.
  • Food trials: eliminating or introducing suspected foods into the diet and observing the body's reaction.

Treating Allergies

Allergy treatment aims to reduce symptoms and prevent their recurrence. The main treatment methods include:

  • Avoiding allergens: minimizing contact with allergens.
  • Medication therapy: antihistamines, corticosteroids, and other medications to reduce symptoms.
  • Immunotherapy: gradually introducing small doses of the allergen to reduce sensitivity to it.
