Exposed to the causative allergen, the mucosa of the eye conjunctiva is congested, becomes dropsical, itches and watered. In circumstances where the climate is hot, the weather is sunny and dry lasting 8 to 9 months per year, the pollinosis with various clinical symptoms, in general, and allergic conjunctivitis, in particular, is enduring enough, with violent clinical symptoms. Allergic conjunctivitis quite often runs with rhinitis (rhino-conjunctivitis). School-aged children often suffer from this pathology, and adolescents aged 15 to 30 rank second.
Directory of diseases
On an annual basis, especially in the spring period, the scientific medical journals publish a range of material devoted to the prevalence rate, clinical symptoms, diagnostics and treatment of allergic rhinitis.
Respiratory allergosis therapy is the most complicated challenge that our modern medicine faces today. The description of particular allergic diseases should be started with bronchial asthma. This is not simple. Bronchial asthma is the serious and dangerous disease followed by the asthma attacks. In practice we meet more frequently bronchial asthma cases as compared to other allergy forms and it ranks first among respiratory allergosis on health-seeking behavior.
Exudative diathesis means “go out” in Latin. Major contributions in this problem investigation were made by M.S. Maslov, G.N. Speranski, J.F. Dombrovskaya, V.A. Tabolin and etc. It should be emphasized that M.S. Maslov has devoted 30 years of his life to the diathesis study. He identified eight varieties of it, out of which the most common are exudative, lymphohypoplastic, and neuro-arthritis ones.
Lymphohypoplastic diathesis ranks second in the group of allergic and other protracted diseases. Children with lymphohypoplastic diathesis appear to be pale, apathetic, easy to feel fatigue and they cannot tolerate long-term and severe irritation.
Neuro-arthritic diathesis is characterized by metabolic disorders - purine, lipid, and carbohydrate.
Papular Urticaria is also known as chronic gum-rash, infant purpura, infant prurigo. Papular Urticaria is the allergic dermatosis observed in children, mostly affected within the age from 3 month to 3 years old.
