Diwali can bring a train of allergies and you need to prepare yourself adequately for it. The firecrackers emit a lot of pollutants in the air and these can be troublesome for those who have an allergic condition. The bursting of firecrackers is an important part of the festive celebrations and it is also considered good from the point of view of ridding the environment from microbial activity which is at its peak at this time of the year. But the resultant air pollution is a cause for concern and allergic people should try to avoid coming in contact with these.
