Allergic Asthma: You Need To Know What Causes It

Aug 17, 2007
As you probably already know if you're reading this, asthma is a respiratory system disease that makes your airways constrict, filling them with mucous, and making it quite uncomfortable and difficult to breathe. Asthma attacks can be scary, and can also scare those around you, because many time they don't know what to think or do. The reality is for others there is not a whole lot they can do for you anyway. The good news is there are many very effective medications for asthma, such as inhalers. These medications are generally quite helpful and easy to use. The inhalers usually work quickly too. Knowing what causes your asthma can keep you breathing easy.

A form of asthma is allergic asthma. With this particular type, sensitivities to certain things is what will bring on one of those scary attacks. A trigger for you, for example, could possibly be pollen. Of course being around too much pollen could make that attack happen. Sounds obvious but if you don't know this and aren't aware what to look for and think about, it can surprise you and become serious. Even dander from an animal, a pet, can cause an attack in some people. A good idea is to get allergy tests done.

Have Allergy Tests

If you'd like to find out if you have allergic asthma, a doctor can provide a test. You'll get very small injections near your spinal cord. These injections contain a very small amount of material from various sources. If the area of the injection becomes irritated, it is usually because you have an allergy to that particular material. Once these materials are properly identified, the doctor can determine if you have allergic asthma.

No worries! It is one hundred percent possible to have a thriving, happy, and normal life, even with allergic asthma. A little change, a little sacrifice here and there is all that will be necessary. You may not be able to have certain pets or at least control where they stay; such as keeping the pet outside instead of inside. These little changes could ultimately keep you from risking your life. Suffering from allergic asthma doesn't have to be like having the Grim Reaper hovering around. Just be a little careful, and be aware of what causes your attacks. If you don't take care of yourself and use your medication as your doctor advises, you could be into trouble you don't want.
