Taking care of Eye Allergies

Eye allergy is also known as ocular allergy  or allergic conjunctivitis. Eye allergy occurs when an allergy sensitive substance irritates the eye. Like any other allergies, eye allergy is also initiated by the immune system, where it recognises  a harmless substance as an allergen and produce antibodies. These antibodies further releases chemicals, that can irritate the eye, which shows  all the symptoms of eye allergic reaction, that include itching in the eyes, producing  in the eye, eye become red or swollen.

Most of the eye allergies are seasonal like, allergic rhinitis in hay fever, that are usually caused due to mold spore and pollen. Eye allergy may cause temporary blurriness or even for some extent threat to the eyesight. However, infection can also cause similar symptoms of eye allergies. Hence, one need to be confirmed it with the doctor. Most of the times a cold compress can give you an immediate relief, but for complete relief, you need to identify the exact cause and the allergens and treat the symptoms.
Symptoms of Eye Allergy includes
1) Eye allergies can also occur alone or with other allergies like nasal allergies and the allergic skin.
2) Redness in the white of the eye or the inner eyelid.
3) Itchy and watery eyes, burning sensation, swollen eyelid, blurred vision, and sensitivity to light.
What should not be done during the Eye Allergies
1) Avoid rubbing the eye, it can make the symptoms more worse. Rubbing may cause to release more  chemicals inside the, that cause the eyes to itch during the allergic  reaction.
2) Remove the contact lenses out, if you wear them,
3) Avoid eye makeup,
4) Apply cold compresses to your eyes.
5) Wash your hands often.
Covering up Eye Allergy

Eye Allergy are Triggered by
a) Most of the eye allergies are seasonal like, allergic rhinitis in hay fever, that are usually caused due to mold spore and pollen.
b) There are some indoor allergens such as pet dander and dust mites can also cause eye allergies year-round. Usually the symptoms worsen during cleaning the house or grooming a pet.
c) Medications and cosmetics can play a significant role in causing eye allergies.
Clean Away Allergens
1) If dust mites trigger the symptoms, change the bedding and pillowcases with a new one. Wash sheets in hot water.
2) Clean floors with a clean and damp mop.
3) If indoor molds trigger the symptoms, regularly clean all the areas where molds can grow, such as bathrooms, basements  and kitchens.
4) Keep the humidity levels in the home between 30% and 50%.
Treating Eye Allergies
It is usually treated symptomatically
1) Antihistamines combat symptoms by blocking the effect of chemicals that can trigger the symptoms.
2) Mast cell stabilizers prevent the release of chemicals, that can trigger the symptoms, from mast cells.
3) Decongestant eye drops decreases redness by shrinking the swollen blood vessels in the eyes.
4) Immunotherapy makes the immune system accustom to the allergic substances .

Talk therapy lowers suicide risk

Talk therapy is emerging as an important alternative to medication with respect to gain a control over repeated suicidal attempts. A very recent study shows that just 6 to 10 talk therapy sessions led to as less as 26 percent fewer suicidal attempts in five years in the group that has received treatment as compared to a group that did not, the researchers concluded.

The psycho-social treatment provides support called notmedication is very much beneficial to prevent suicide in a group that is already at high risk of dying by suicide. The researchers have also put stress on the fact that it might be really valuable to broadly put forth or implement therapy programs for people who have tried of committing suicides in the past.

The researchers then compared their outcomes over time with 17,304 people who had attempted suicide and looked similar on 31 factors but had not gone for treatment afterward. After five years, there were 26 percent fewer suicides in the group that had been treated with psycho-social therapy following their attempt.

The therapy itself varied depending on the individual needs of the patient so the researchers cannot say exactly what the "active ingredient" was that inoculated many against future suicide attempts. A study was published online in the journal Lancet Psychiatry.

Excess protein during brain development may cause schizophrenia

A new study has revealed that excess protein during brain development may trigger schizophrenia later in life. According to new Rutgers research, a gene associated with schizophrenia plays a role in brain development and may help to explain the biological process of the disease.

The researchers said that too much protein expressed by the NOS1AP gene, which has been associated with schizophrenia , causes abnormalities in brain structure and faulty connections between nerve cells that prevent them from communicating properly. Bonnie Firestein, professor in the Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience, said that their research indicates that an overabundance of a protein in the NOS1AP gene resulted in the dendrites-tree-like structures that allow cells to talk to each other and are essential to the functioning of the nervous system-being stunted in the developing brains of rats.

It was also found that too much of the NOS1AP protein in brain cells didn't allow them to branch out and kept them deep within the neocortex, the portion of the brain responsible for higher functioning skills, such as spatial reasoning, conscious thought, motor commands, language development and sensory perception.

Firestein said that when the brain develops, it sets up a system of the right type of connectivity to make sure that communication can occur and they saw that the nerve cells didn't move to the correct locations and didn't have dendrites that branch out to make the connections that were needed. The study was published in Biological Psychiatry.

A glass of wine a day good for heart than none at all: Study

Drinking a small glass of wine a day may give you a better chance of avoiding heart failure than those who don't drink at all, according to scientists.

In a new study, scientists have discovered that middle-aged men who drink up to seven small glasses of wine or about three and a half pints of beer a week are 20 per cent less likely to develop heart failure when compared to teetotalers.

The study also found that the apparent protective effects were more marginal in women, but up to seven drinks a week still gave moderate female drinkers a 16 per cent reduced risk of heart failure over their non-drinking counterparts.

Researcher Scott Solomon of Harvard Medical School in Boston, said that these findings suggest that drinking alcohol in moderation does not contribute to an increased risk of heart failure and may even be protective.

He added that the study shows there is an association between drinking moderate amounts of alcohol and a lower risk of heart failure but this does not necessarily mean that moderate alcohol consumption causes the lowered risk. However, researchers cautioned that the findings shouldn't be used as an excuse to booze it up as heavy alcohol use is certainly a risk factor.

Beef controversy in India into a different medical direct

Beef controversy in India into a new lead as veteran scientist PM Bhargava returns his ‘Padma Bhusan’ in protest against alleged rise in intolerance in the country on the context of beef ban controversy. He says that ancient Indian scriptures imposed no bar in eating beef and at times Ayurveda prescribed beef for those suffering from the loss of flesh due to disorders caused by an excess of irregular fever, dry cough, fatigue, and also in cases of excessive appetite resulting from hard manual labour.

In India beef is not just a food, but a political tool which initiates a lot of controversy. As the pro-Hindu political group who says cow is a divine animal according to Hinduism, and it should not be killed but worshipped, wants it banned in India. Controversies are flourishing as the Muslim community get haunted by the fundamentalists among the Hindu group.

The real issue to be discussed for the ultimate benefit of human race is that, different streams of medicines say different things about beef. As Ayurveda supports beef, Modern medical science says that beef causes a lot of health issues. This is a real complicated issue when it comes to a point where whom should we follow.

Antibiotics: the suicide bombs

Antibiotics are among the most commonly prescribed medications in the US. An antibiotic side (adverse) effect is an unwanted reaction that occurs in addition to the desirable therapeutic action of the antibiotic. When used appropriately, antibiotics are relatively safe with very few side effects. However, like any drug, antibiotic side effects can occur and may interfere with the patient’s ability to tolerate and finish the course of medication.

Antibiotic reactions can range from mild allergic reactions to severe and debilitating adverse events. Antibiotic side effects are extremely variable from patient to patient and from antibiotic to antibiotic.

If a patient is experiencing a bothersome or serious antibiotic side effect, they should contact their health care provider. The outcomes may include staying on the same antibiotic and managing the side effect, adjusting the dose, or switching to a different antibiotic. Usually, antibiotic treatment should not be stopped without a health care provider’s approval. Stopping the antibiotic may allow the infection to worsen and may lead to antibiotic resistance. Even if the infection appears to have cleared up before all of the medication is gone, the full course of antibiotic treatment should always be completed unless told otherwise by a health care provider.

An antibiotic allergy or hypersensitivity reaction can happen with any drug, and allergies are one of the most common antibiotic side effects leading to emergency room admission.1 Health care providers should always be informed of any previous allergic reaction to any medication, including antibiotics. Mild allergic reactions may only result in a skin rash. More severe allergic reactions, called anaphylaxis, can lead to shortness of breath, wheezing, hives, and swelling of the face, lips or tongue. Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency that requires immediate medical attention.

Antibiotics are used to kill bacterial infections; they are not effective against viral infections, such as a cold or the flu, or against fungal infections, like ringworm or vaginal yeast infections. The most common antibiotic classes and drug members are listed in Table 1, along with the most commonly reported antibiotic side effects. This is not a complete list of all available antibiotics or side effects that may occur.
