Atopic Dermatitis with Nasal Allergies due to Multiple Food Intolerances: A Case Study

Successful Treatment of the 4-Year-Old Child in Allergy March with Ayurveda

Abstract:

Allergy March is a condition where the patient suffers from skin hypersensitivity reactions due to food intolerance and food sensitivity reactions. This skin hypersensitivity is called Atopic dermatitis which when left untreated can exaggerate to Allergic rhinitis and Asthma. 

Atopic dermatitis is the inflammation of the skin. It occurs due to the hypersensitivity reactions our body produces when exposed to certain types of allergens. The allergens include dust, pollen, smoke, some fragrances, mites, and specific foods. 

When a person is exposed to the above-mentioned allergens, his body treats the allergens as an antigen and starts producing antibodies to fight against them. But it causes inflammation in his skin, because of hypersensitivity reactions.

This condition is quite common in children but can also be seen in adults. There is no specific gender-variant that is more prevalent in this condition. Common causes are the allergens entering or coming in contact with his body. Symptoms include itching, redness over the skin, rashes, papules or vesicles on the skin, inflammation and so on. Upon severity of the condition, the skin becomes intensified and scaly. 

Rashes can usually be found on the neck, ground, armpits, elbow joints and on. Usual allopathic treatment involves steroid creams and antihistamines which are best for providing symptomatic relief but produce not so good results in the long term. That’s where comes into play our Ancient Ayurveda which has some incredible herbs that not only help to get relief from symptoms but also help in preventing the condition from reoccurring. 

We take a chance to introduce you to IAFA® founded by Dr Sahil Gupta who is a well-known allergy specialist not only in India but also in Canada, Australia and the US. His treatment particularly for allergies has been widespread worldwide.
