It is not necessary that headache, itchy skin and a stuffy or runny nose happen to be just symptoms of cold. Headache, Cold and Cough could be due to poor air quality at home.
Research carried out among women and children in Lucknow, has found poor indoor air quality leading to over 10 ailments including cough and wheezing, dry throat, shortness of breath, itchy eyes and more.
Research was undertaken by a team led by Alfred Lawrence of the Chemistry Faculty at Isabella Thoburn College of Lucknow University to assess the health-risk among women and children, specifically due to indoor air pollution.
Findings of research presented recently at an international conference at the University College of Stockholm, Sweden, found headache as most common symptom because it was reported by 60 per cent women, while in children it was stuffy nose as reported by 62 per cent.
It is pertinent to mention here that participants included 560 women from three micro-environments.
