Allergy awarenessAllergy awareness is sometimes very easily detected and other times much harder to understand shy we are feeling as we are. Those who unfortunately suffer from allergies or are sometimes inconvenienced with an allergic reaction, know too  well how difficult it is to diagnose and control this disease. One often needs to take a series of tests to determine the exact cause, and then – to try several medications until we find one that really works. Consequently there are quite a few myths associated with common allegies.
Myth 1: All medications help
Many believe that in spite of their condition, medications that are sold without a prescription will be sufficiently effective against the symptoms and cause of their allegy. In reality, purchasing medications from a pharmacy is no guarantee that it will alleviate the symptoms and even fewer that will neutralize the causes that lead to allergic attacks. To achieve the desired effect, the patient should be examined by a specialist to determine exactly what caused this  condition and prescribe appropriate medication accordingly.
Myth 2: nasal sprays lead to addiction
Experts believe that  products that remove swelling in the nose may become addictive. On the other hand, if you overdo the use of a spray it can reduce it’s effectiveness and ceases to be of help to the patient. It is therefore recommended its use should not last more than three consecutive days.

If the honey is produced in the region in which one lives can really be about the consumption of copper to prevent. In general, however, the main causes of allergy are not used by bees for honey production. It can not be said with certainty that consumption of honey will deliver us from allergy attacks. Moreover nowadays it is difficult to find honey with proven origin and composition.
Myth 4: If a person suffers from allergies from pollen, it does not mean it necessarily is allergic to other products
In practice this is, but statistics show that nearly a third of people who suffer from allergies to pollen are allergic to many other products.

Myth 5: An allergy is found in blood
Another popularly enjoyed  myth is that blood testing can reveal the presence of an allergy. In reality, however, blood tests yield a precision and accuracy of the skin,  allergen exposure to blood is limited.
