Pediatric Allergy Center at Samitivej Sriracha Hospital
Allergies are on the rise all around the globe, including in Thailand. A decade ago, the rate of asthma among children in Bangkok was 4.2 percent. Today, that figure has increased to 13 percent and continues to rise. Another common respiratory allergy, sinusitis, is now present in 20 percent of the local population. Meanwhile, more and more people are showing signs of food allergies, some of them severe enough to be life-threatening.
Several factors are contributing to the dramatic increase in respiratory allergies in Thailand. Air pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, dust from the streets, cigarette smoke, industrial plants and vehicle exhaust from Bangkok’s congested roads all add to the disturbing trend.
Changes to the local lifestyle have also exacerbated the problem. Traditional Thai homes are open to the surrounding air and natural environment. In contrast, many contemporary, Western-style homes are poorly ventilated and contain pets and carpets filled with dust and mold. All this ensures that inhabitants are continually inhaling a steady stream of allergens, thereby stimulating the body to produce antibodies.
