Coronavirus and Allergy Link
People with allergic colds and eye allergies especially in spring often need to take their hands to their nose and eyes and sneeze. You know, we have been fighting the coronavirus outbreak globally for a while. In this process, experts warn people a lot to prevent this virus from spreading and spreading further. The most important of these warnings is washing hands frequently with soap and using disposable tissue paper when they need sneezing.
For those with allergic diseases, the trouble begins here. These people are more likely to get coronavirus infections. The reason for this is that the patient often feels the need to bring his hand to his nose and eye when the cause of the allergic reaction occurs. Before this, it is highly likely that he had touched a surface where the coronavirus was located before. As a result, this person will be more at risk of developing coronavirus disease. This is a dimension of the risk.
On the other hand, this patient carrying a coronavirus will naturally infect more people around him because of frequent sneezing and excessive runny nose.
As a result, coronavirus can be transmitted to people with allergies more easily for these reasons. These patients can also spread this virus more around them. Therefore, especially those who have allergic fever against pollen will be better not to go out these days first. If they need to go out, they should pay attention to the social distancing (at least 1 meter). What’s more, these people should wash their hands more often and wear masks. Additionally, they should wipe the nose and eyes with the outer part of the hand, as recommended, if they do not have disposable wipes with them.
Differences Between Symptoms of Coronavirus and Allergic Disease
While cough, shortness of breath, fever and sore throat are at the forefront of coronavirus disease, the symptoms of allergic fever are often sneezing, watery eyes, runny nose, and fever is generally absent.
