Allergy UK has developed FAQs aimed at patients about Coronavirus and allergies.
Key medicines-related issues
Below are examples of the types of FAQs addressed:
- Do medications for allergic conditions, such as antihistamines and montelukast have a negative effect on immunity?
- Should medications for asthma or allergy be stopped if the patient has come into contact with a COVID-19 positive individual?
- Can I keep using steroid nasal sprays?
- How do get medications (prescription and non-prescription) if self-isolating?
There is also a COVID-19 Vaccination and Allergies FAQ, produced in conjunction with Anaphylaxis Campaign and the British Society for Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
