Primary prevention

[Translate to Englisch:] Primärprävention

Primary prevention: The so-called primary prevention is what is generally understood by prevention: to prevent the development of an allergy from the outset. This means avoiding anything that could increase the risk of developing an allergy and doing anything that would make the body more tolerant of certain substances. Recommendations are therefore addressed to anyone who has not yet developed an allergy. more (in German)

[Translate to Englisch:] Sekundärprävention

Secondary prevention: The so-called secondary prevention is aimed at the early stage of a disease: for example, people who are already sensitised and show no or only the first signs of the disease. Preventive measures are designed to prevent the allergy from fully manifesting itself, to prevent a change of level or symptoms, or to prevent the disease from becoming chronic. This includes avoiding individually known allergens such as certain foods or cat hair. more (in German)

[Translate to Englisch:] Tertiärprävention

Tertiary prevention: Tertiary prevention is about people in whom the allergic disease has already broken out completely. The aim is to prevent further worsening or subsequent illnesses. The distinction between secondary and tertiary prevention is fairly theoretical. In practice, they mix and, depending on the stage of the disease, appropriate preventive or therapeutic measures are taken, e.g. vaccination, specific immunotherapy or alleviating stays in the high mountains. more (in German)
