So, a little snippet I discovered yesterday........
Often, we’re told “you’ll grow out of it” (as children), or “it’s just your age” when adults, but I hate not knowing why. Love to know reason.
I had such severe hayfever as a child, but all year round (allergic rhinitis), leading to endless prescriptions and sinus operations and specialists. Before being discharged the consultant just said “you’ll grow out of it” and indeed by 17, I suffered a lot less.
Ive noticed lately I can’t stop sneezing 😤😤😤😤🤧🤧🤧🤧, and I’m thinking “Oh no, it’s back with a vengeance!” but been learning that from around 45 when hormones lower, and oestrogen dwindles, so histamine INCREASES, as oestrogen works by blocking histamine! Hence any allergies you may have had as a child, all come back again to a degree, once older!
My mum is often getting bitten on ankles when walking dog in fields, yet my dad never ever gets any bites. Again, she’s back taking anti histamines that hasn’t needed since younger days!
It makes so much sense once know facts; wish professionals would explain in more detail instead of constantly just citing age!
