CETIRIZIN HEXAL ® Allergy - an overreaction of the body
In the case of an allergy, the immune system reacts inappropriately violently to rather harmless substances such as animal hair or in the case of hay fever to pollen.
The body tries to catch these "intruders" and render them harmless. If "intruders" are caught, messenger substances such as histamine are released.
These trigger small inflammations and widen the blood vessels. Depending on where this happens, there are different allergy symptoms such as itching, sneezing, runny nose, watery eyes or skin reactions.
This is how Cetirizin HEXAL ® helps with allergies
Antihistamines such as cetirizine block the histamine receptor and thus prevent the development of typical allergy symptoms such as itching, runny nose or itchy eyes.
The active ingredient cetirizine dihydrochloride contained in Cetirizin HEXAL ® for allergies can alleviate the allergic symptoms within half an hour after ingestion.
Typical allergic reactions of the skin to allergens with which it has either come into direct contact or which got into the body through food are itching, reddening, rashes or wheals.
CHRONIC ALLERGIC RUSH
Allergens that get into the body via the air, such as animal hair or the excretions of house dust mites, often trigger an allergic runny nose. The nasal mucosa swells, the nose becomes blocked, begins to run and itches.
HAY FEVER (POLLEN ALLERGY)
It is typical of hay fever that it worsens during the pollen season when the weather is nice, especially during the day. On the other hand, prolonged rainfall leads to an improvement in symptoms. Common symptoms are a runny, itchy nose, the urge to sneeze, and red, watery eyes.
