The role of a general practitioner in treating diseases caused by allergy to ambrosia

  • If you have any of the following symptoms: frequent itch, red and watery eyes, sneezing, increased nasal mucus, heavy breathing or changes on your skin, please consult your doctor.

    The doctor then records the data related to your symptoms, the time when the problems occurred, their frequency and intensity.
    They will also ask you about your previous diseases, as well as proneness to any type of allergy (e.g. to food, medications, etc.).
    Your doctor will also be interested to know about any possible diseases in your family, especially allergic diseases and reactions.

    What follows is an examination, with a focus on the organs affected by the symptoms.
    If an allergy is diagnosed, a therapy needs to be introduced.

    If some other cause of the problems is suspected, the patients should be referred to a specialist.
    Prior to that, at least the basic laboratory analyses (CBC) and skin allergy tests should be conducted.

    Your doctor also plays an important role in giving you advice about habits that need to be changed, as well as about the way that allergy symptoms need to be treated.

    Also, your doctor should inform you about a possible need and significance of therapy, its safety and possible side-effects. The patient needs to know how long the therapy will last and how important it is to start taking medications on time, so that allergy diseases can be prevented.
