26 Jun Asthma And Allergy
Allergies can be in many forms, some might have rashes due to it, some might not be able to stop sneezing and some might go through a very abnormal happening in the body. Allergy is caused when the body is unable to intake a particular substance and reacts to it in various forms. Many people go through regular check up to know what all are the substances they are allergic to and hence would stay miles away from the same. The test is done in a very complex manner, the doctor injects various samples on the arm in a very little amount which would cause almost nil side effect but the rash or a particular sting might occur visible on the arm. The particular sting or substance the person is allergic to, comes to doctor’s knowledge and he finally tells how severely the patient is allergic to that substance. The sample covers all the substances which are edible, and also all the insects’ stings which we encounter in our daily lives like mosquitoes and bees etc.
Some allergies which cause sneezing problems or can cause watery eyes might become a cause for asthma attack and hence must be very careful of the particular allergy. Many people easily fall short of breath when come across dust particles and such severe asthma attacks can only be controlled by taking an inhaler.

The common symptoms of Asthma occur when people come across pollens, dust mites etc and it usually triggers while exercising in cold or when come across some smoke or fumes.

When a person is allergic asthma patient, his airways get extra sensitive to certain allergens. Allergens are the substances that might instigate the allergy from that particular substance. Once these substances enter his body, the immune system which usually acts like a shield to protect starts over-reacting and the muscles around the airways start tightening causing inflammation and forming thick mucus flooding in the way.
The substances which are small to the extent that it can be breathed deep into the lungs like windblown pollens from grasses, weed, trees, flowers etc, dust mite feces, cockroach feses, animal dander and saliva, or mold spores and fregmants.
