Allergies by themselves are much of a discomfort. They not only restrict the person from doing certain things or from eating particular kinds of food, but they also bring with them the other effects and side effects. There is a whole list of medicines along with a list of ‘to dos’ and ‘not to dos’. As a result, there are a lot of times when the person cannot do what he or she particularly likes to do.
For example, things such as eating out at restaurants, the consumption of chocolates or any other favorite food, living inside and within the premises or confinements of the house and such other things are imposed upon them. Due to these things there are chances of depression developing in them. At the same time the individual feels embarrassed or even guilty when the topic comes up by chance in front of the others, or if it is openly and consciously brought up by someone.
However some steps can be taken by those undergoing an allergic condition to minimize these affects. Also those around them can help and contribute in making the surroundings livable and convenient for these people. These can be as follows:
Cleanliness – it must be ensured that all the areas are kept clean. Places and spaces that are more likely to get dusty and infected should be wiped and washed regularly everyday so as to avoid accumulation of insects and mites. Also it will help to avoid uncomfortable smells and stinks which can otherwise prove to be a nuisance for such patients.
Plants – it is advisable that a lot of greenery is made to surround people who are allergic in nature. They must grow plants such as creepers and those having medicinal properties such as herbs around them. Similarly, saplings that are expected to grow flowers such as Jasmines, Sunflowers, Lilies and Roses should be planted. This will help in creating a good atmosphere and also assist in keeping the air and environment around fresh, clean, healthy, visually attractive and positive.
Vacuum – it is vital to vacuum the area in which an allergic person lives. A lot of tiny particles of dust gather and accumulate in little spaces, splits and gaps. Such kind of dust and sand powder invites and brings about a lot of termites and pests which might prove to be undesirable and unhealthy in such cases. Similarly it is necessary to remove all webs and the very mini eggs laid by bugs as these can prove harmful through the air.
Bed washing – bed sheets must be changed frequently. At the most it may be used for a week although in normal circumstances it may be used for a couple of weeks or so. However considering the vulnerability of allergic people, it must be replaced with fresh and washed ones every week. Also, the bed must be dusted every day before sleeping on it. This will help to keep away bed bugs at night.
All these steps along with consideration for allergic people will help in improving the condition faster and better.
