Asthama is a chronic lung disease where the person’s ability to
breath easily gets badly affected. This is due to narrowing of
the air tubes in the lungs – accosted by tightening of the
muscles surrounding the airway, inflammation and swelling of the
airway lining and production of thick sticky mucous within the
airway. This process is triggered by a specific allergy or when
something irritates the lungs. Some of the asthma symptoms
include wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath and chest
Strenuous exercise, stress, worry and many other non-allergen
triggers can trigger an asthma attack. But alergic asthma is
always caused by subsequent contact with allergens or weather
changes, viral or sinus infections.
SYMPTOMS ASSOCIATED WITH ALERGIC
Sudden or repeated coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath,
rapid breathing, and/or tightness in the chest, sneezing, itchy
or watery eyes, stuffy nose or congestion, runny nose, being
near dust, pollen from trees or flowers, animal fur or dander,
or molds worsen asthma symptoms.
If anybody who suffers with frequent "colds" that develop
suddenly and occur at the same time every year, it is possible
that they are in fact suffering from seasonal allergies.
Although colds and allergies may share some of the same
symptoms, they are very much different. Viruses generally cause
colds and allergies are an immune system response caused by
exposure to an allergen. Cold viruses are easily spread from
person to person whereas you can't "catch" an allergy from
someone who has an alergy.
