Especially in spring and summer, those affected are hit particularly hard and not everyone is happy about the sea of flowers and blooming plants.

Pollen and pollen are the most common allergy triggers. The body is protected against pathogenic foreign substances by a highly effective defence system, our immune system. The skin and our mucous membranes form an initial barrier against intruders in the area of the eyes and respiratory tract. In hay fever, this is exactly where the allergic reactions occur. If the foreign substances then continue to enter the bloodstream, the immune system releases messenger substances. In this way, an excessive amount of substances such as histamine is produced, which can then lead to inflammatory reactions. Air purifiers with special filters suck in the ambient air and clean it of fine dust, pollen and pollen. In this way, people with hay fever allergy can reduce allergenic dust, at least indoors, and relieve the symptoms of the disease.
