Allergies are widespread and have many faces. At 14.8%, hay fever (pollen allergy) is one of the most common allergies in Germany. The immune system mistakenly classifies harmless invaders such as pollen, house dust or insect venom as dangerous and consequently reacts with an alarm reaction – the release of messenger substances. Histamine plays a crucial role in this. Tormenting symptoms such as itching and burning in the area of the eyes and nasal mucous membranes can be attributed to it. A runny nose and violent sneezing attacks are also typical of pollen allergies. But other things such as food, pets or insecticides can also cause various allergic reactions and even serious circulatory problems.
Cetirizine dihydrochloride is one of the active ingredients that inhibit the effects of histamine. Drugs containing cetirizine hydrochloride are therefore referred to as antiallergic drugs.
