With the advent of spring, many people may get sick due to eye, nose and skin irritation, as a result of the spread of pollen and dust in the air.
In this context, Masrawy reviews the causes of spring allergy and ways to prevent it, according to Dr. Magdy Badran, a member of the Egyptian Society of Allergy and Immunology, and the webmd website.
According to the “webmd” website, the spring allergy is produced as a resistance response from the body, especially the immune system, to fight substances that it does not recognize, such as dust and pollen scattered in the air, which are produced by different trees and herbs in the spring of the pollination process, and transmitted to the body by touch or Breathing.
Dr. Magdy Badran, a member of the Egyptian Society of Allergy and Immunology, also reveals the cause of allergy, saying that the pollen carried by wind and dust causes some people to get sick after inhaling the dust, which leads to irritation of the mucous membranes, according to statements he made to the “Ambassador Aziza” program on the channel DMC.
