IMSS provides medical management, guidance and treatment to improve quality of life for people with allergies / @Tu_IMSS >>>

#IMSS.- The Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) initially provides people with allergies with guidance to identify the exacerbating factors in order to avoid those that aggravate their health; pharmacological medical management, which improves the symptoms and the inflammatory process that causes the allergy; and specific allergen immunotherapy treatment, with the aim of reducing the patient’s symptoms.

Within the framework of World Allergy Day, which is commemorated on July 8, Dr. Alejandra Piñera Cruz, attached to the Allergy and Immunology Service of the Hospital General de Zona (HGZ) No. 48 San Pedro Xalpa, pointed out that allergy is a genetic disease, which means that there must be a certain genetic predisposition and a subsequent exposure to the allergen, which is the substance that can cause a negative reaction in the organism.

«There will be a first stage called sensitization, where I know or my body knows the allergen and begins to generate that response, although it is not yet florid or does not have a classic clinical picture. When I am exposed to the allergen again, it is precisely when the body already has an explosion and a more noticeable inflammatory process,» she explained.

The allergist explained that the Mexican Institute of Social Security evaluates diseases related to allergies such as allergic rhinitis, asthma, atopic dermatitis and also evaluates others that are not so frequent, such as urticaria of various types or variables, drug allergy or food allergy, among others.

He specified that the most common symptoms of allergies treated at IMSS are: itching, nasal discharge, sneezing, congestion or stuffy nose, coughing, wheezing or whistling in the chest, difficulty in breathing; sometimes, when it affects the skin, there are welts or plaques that appear as pimples that generate a lot of itching.
