Atopic dermatitis connection with asthma

Atopic dermatitisAtopic dermatitis is one chronic skin disease, which is widespread and affects a significant part of the population. In statistics, 15-20% of sufferers are children, while some of the adults (about 3%) symptoms persist. In contrast, in the majority of affected in puberty years, the disease tends to improve. Atopic dermatitis is more common in representatives of Caucasian and Mongoloid race. As causes of the disease is highlighted as hereditary and some immunological characteristics of the organism. Other clinical manifestations of m. Called. Atopy are allergic rhinitis, conjunctivitis, bronchial asthma, and some allergic conditions of the gastrointestinal tract. Passage of symptoms of some organs and systems other is known in medicine as “atopic march”. The emergence of this type of atopic predisposition is justified mainly by the occurrence of abnormalities in the immunological status of the organism.
It has been shown that the reduced amount of a particular class of lymphocytes is related to increasing the level of t. Pomegranate. Immunoglobulin E, which is directly related to the occurrence of allergic reactions. To a large extent this specific amounts of immunoglobulin accumulates in the skin and potentiate the development of atopy. In the extended form that combines the development of atopy dermatitis, bronchial asthma and subsequent characteristic. Behind the changes in functionality of certain immune cells that represent the first line of defense against the introduction and propagation in the body of a variety of disease-causing organisms. This in itself leads to susceptibility to various bacterial and viral infections. This fact explains the frequent illness of inflammation of the upper and lower respiratory tract suffering from atopic dermatitis.
Recurrent infections of the upper respiratory tract determine the greater probability of occurrence of pneumonia, bronchitis and so spastic bronchial asthma. Respiratory disorders often alternate with deterioration of dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is characterized by dry skin, intense itching and skin irritation. There were three main stages, and each one of them the disease can gain a broader, affecting other organs. Effect on the nasal mucosa leads to the development of allergic rhinitis, which is characterized by continuous flowing of a limpid and rare nasal. Other symptoms include sneezing, coughing and a sense of constant itching in the nose. Transfer of atopic process to the eyes leads to the development of allergic conjunctivitis, accompanied by tearing, burning and itching. His eyes were bloodshot and eyelids most often swollen. Bronchial asthma is characterized by reversible obstruction of the airways and the presence of bronchospasm.
Some foods belonging to the allergen-containing may not only deteriorate, but also to cause allergic symptoms from the gastrointestinal tract. This group is assigned seafood, hairy fruit, some nuts – such as peanuts and foods containing cocoa. Due to the poor skin barrier as a result of the disease is facilitated penetration of various irritants (stimuli), including allergens, and infectious agents – herpes viruses, streptococci, staphylococci, and others. This is the reason for the treatment of atopy to add local antibiotic. To a differential diagnosis of the disease come into consideration seborrhea, contact dermatitis, mycosis, scabies and other
