HCM CITY (VNS) — More than 700 doctors came together at a seminar on allergic rhintitis and urticaria, that was conducted both in Ha Noi and HCM City last week by Sanofi, a global healthcare leader.

The seminar was aimed to update the participants and local doctors on the latest techniques in case of these diseases as well as the causes and diagnosis concerning these.

The doctors wanted to raise people's awareness about the ways in which they can protect themselves from the disease and avoid allergic rhintitis and urticaria.

According to a latest study, the ratio of students who were afflicted by allergic rhintitis and urticaria in HCM City and Ha Noi reached 41.5 per cent and 34.9 per cent, respectively.

The two conditions are very common in Viet Nam, but are not harmful though these cause the patients a lot of trouble due to the high environmental pollution doctors said. — VNS
