Allergic angina is a chronic disease. It is caused by allergens such as pollen, dust mites and mold spores. Since these types of allergenic substances are everywhere, it's important to understand what allergic angina is and how to prevent it.

Allergic anginais an overreaction of the immune system to allergens, which causes the mucosa of the throat to swell. The result of this process is clogging of the throat by the so-called phlegm, i.e. the thick secretion of the respiratory tract.

Allergic angina: causes

The causes of allergic angina are allergens, such as:

  • pollen of trees, pollen of grasses and weeds
  • mold spores
  • food (most often it is milk that sensitizes babies)
  • animal hair and saliva
  • dust mite feces
  • cockroach droppings

allergic angina: symptoms

The symptoms of allergic anginaare very similar to the symptoms of angina caused by a viral infection. These include:

  • strong cough
  • a sore or itchy throat
  • feeling of obstruction in the throat
  • feeling of secretions running down the back of the throat

However, there are several symptoms that accompany the above-mentioned symptoms and indicate allergic angina. They are:

  • watery eyes
  • hay fever
  • atopic dermatitis or urticaria

Allergic angina - how to treat?

  1. For pollinosis, reduce your exposure to pollen from grasses and flowers. When pollen levels are high, stay home and keep your windows closed.
  2. For mites, avoid mites. It is best to wrap pillows and mattresses in anti-allergic covers, and wash the bedding once a week in very hot water.
  3. Also check the air humidity in the room (must not exceed 40 percent).
  4. Keep the kitchen and bathroom clean to prevent mold and the breeding of cockroaches.
  5. Take antihistamines to suppress the allergenic substance.
