ALLERGOLOGY

ALLERGIC RHINOCONJUNCTIVITIS
Many people complain of itching eyes and running nose during the period of pollen dispersal. They are suffering from allergic rhinoconjunctivitis, also popularly known as hay fever. The symptoms of the disease can already begin early in the year and continue until autumn. In addition to the symptomatic therapy with antihistaminic agents a specific immunotherapy (syn.: hyposensitisation) can be offered when the allergic rhinoconjunctivitis has been present for several years. In the course of this therapy, the patient receives the triggering allergen in small dosages. With time the body gets used to the allergen and is thus made hyposensitive.
