Asthma, it turns out, threatens even the baby in the womb. It turned out that the more often a pregnant woman catches a cold, the higher the risk of allergies and asthma in a child. It is believed that viruses and bacteria that have entered the body of a future mother affect the intrauterine environment in which the baby is located. Due to their aggressive effects, the child increases the risk of developing allergies and even asthma in the future. It is especially dangerous if, after birth, such a baby will live in an apartment in which there are pets. It is also dangerous if a child encounters dust mites, which is why it is so important to get rid of feather pillows and woolen blankets in which they like to settle, as well as old sofas and carpets. Do not buy a lot of soft toys for your baby. The apartment needs to be cleaned daily. In the spring, when there are even more allergens on the street, nets should be put on the windows. As a rule, hypersensitivity to allergens appears in children by the age of five.
Regarding animals, there is another point of view: in rural areas, early contact with animals develops immunity to allergens. Although, most likely, in villages where there are many animals, the air is cleaner, so children get sick less. In recent years, the number of people suffering from allergies and asthma has been increasing. Many experts believe that this is due to poor ecology, the use of products with harmful additives. Some asthmatics note that after moving from a metropolis to a small town or village, they no longer suffer from asthma attacks, and there is no need to use aerosols.
