Skin reaction (itching, pimples, swelling) or general discomfort occurring after contact with a particular substance, use of a medication, or ingestion of food. The main forms of allergy are eczema, urticaria, asthma, angioedema and allergic shock (anaphylactic shock). Food allergy can also result in digestive disorders.

Adverse effects of atropinic drugs include: thickening of bronchial secretions, dry mouth and mucous membranes, constipation, risk of urine blockage and acute glaucoma in susceptible persons, accommodation disorders, abnormal sensitivity to light by dilation of the pupil. Taking several atropine medicines increases the risk of adverse effects.

Partial epilepsy, as its name implies, does not concern the whole body: the jerky movements only touch one or more muscle groups.
Inability of the kidneys to eliminate waste or medicinal substances. Advanced renal insufficiency does not necessarily result in a decrease in the amount of urine excreted. Only a blood test and creatinine dosage may reveal this disease.
Accumulation of water or lymph causing localized swelling.

Health Education Council:
a) What is an allergy, what is an allergic reaction?
Allergy is an overreaction of our body to substances it considers harmful: allergens. Allergens are the factors and substances triggering allergy and associated disorders.
During repeated and intensive contacts of our body with the allergen, an allergic reaction is triggered.
The allergic reaction refers to all symptoms appearing a few minutes or hours after exposure to allergens. These allergens come from plants, animal hair, food, dust mites, molds or are substances of occupational origin.
This allergic reaction causes the release in the body of substances such as the histamine responsible for the disorders felt.
Like any allergic disease, it is important to consult a doctor at least once. IT SHALL DETERMINE IN PARTICULAR THE NEED FOR AN ALLERGOLOGICAL REVIEW.
b) How to recognize allergic rhinitis, seasonal or non-seasonal allergic conjunctivitis, localized acute urticaria?
Allergic rhinitis results in the following symptoms: successive sneezing, colorless nasal discharge, nasal obstruction (stuffy nose), itching and tingling of the nose. It may be accompanied by irritations of both eyes (tearing, redness), throat and nose.
We distinguish :
· seasonal allergic rhinitis or hay fever : they occur every year in the same season when the concentration of pollen increases in the air. These allergies due to pollen are very common and usually manifest for the first time during adolescence. They are repeated every year at the same time, depending on the presence of the responsible pollen (s). However, you are not allergic to all pollens, but to one or more of them only.
· perennial allergic rhinitis , occur throughout the year and most often depend on domestic allergens such as mites, dust, mold, and domestic animals.
· Allergic conjunctivitis is characterized by tearing and tingling of both eyes.
· The localized acute urticaria results in plaques with itching, redness, edema (swelling).
c) Some practical tips
Removing the allergen (is foreclosure) is the measure of choice to suppress or reduce the symptoms of allergy.
For household allergens: measures to reduce the presence of allergens are essential:
· The mattress should be completely surrounded by a plastic dust mite cover as well as the pillows. The bed base, unless it is in slats or metal, shall be surrounded by a plastic. All bedding should be washed twice a month at 60 ° C if possible.
· The room should be ventilated and cleaned regularly.
· On the floor, you will avoid bed runs and carpets.
· Avoid pets.
During the pollen season it is possible to reduce the exposure to pollen:
· In your garden, diversify the plantations avoiding the most allergenic species (cypress, thuja, birch ...),
· Avoid lawn mowing yourself during the pollen season,
· Garde preferably with glasses and a protective mask.
