Sanofi Lebanon celebrates the World Allergy Week under the theme: “The Agony of Hives: What to do when welts and swelling don’t go away”

Sanofi Lebanon raises allergy awareness among sufferers and their family and friends every April, on the occasion of World Allergy Week.

This year, under the theme “The Agony of Hives: What to do when welts and swelling do not go away”, Sanofi and the Lebanese Society of Allergy and Immunology held a press conference to address Chronic Urticaria, shedding light on its triggers, symptoms and treatments.

The event was driven by the President and the Vice-President of the Lebanese Society of Allergy & Immunology.

The speakers highlighted the complications, symptoms and possible triggers of chronic Urticaria, a frustrating and sometimes life-threatening illness. Speakers focused on the vital role of the allergist/immunologist in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic Urticaria as well as the control of its symptoms, while emphasizing on prescribing the right medication, or combination of medications, that work and do not have adverse side effects, and which can improve the patients’ quality of life.
