A Study of Allergens

Dr Prashanth Kumar [5]


Abstract: Almost forty percent of the people living in India is diagnosed to have some or the other kind of allergy. This caused mucous metaplasia and hyperplasia. Thus repeated and prolonged exposure leads to structural changes and enhanced mucous production. The tissues are washed with cytokines and other inflammatory mediators which causes classical pictures of asthma. A sincere effort has been made to find out the common allergens that cause the respiratory complications. This study is intended to help the fellow practitioners to identify the commonly associated allergens and thus take immediate actions in diagnosing and treating the patient which presents in complications in OPD. This study was conducted in the Department of Internal Medicine, Kanachur Institute of Medical Sciences, at Mangalore. The study was conducted from April 2016 to September 2016.160 cases were studied in the Department of Medicine. . Mean age of the study population was 21.26 years with a standard deviation of 9.43. The most common presentation was rhinitis. Family history was found to be not significant. Dust allergy to exposure was significant. The most common allergen in this study has been identified successfully. This study forms a platform for many more studies in the near future so that more and more allergens which are significantly related can be found and affectively dealt with. Being in a country like ours where people carry out different customs and are exposed to a plethora of allergens it is the need of the hour to identify the allergen and properly dealt with in the local environment.
