Allergic asthma is the most common type of asthma and its caused by breathing in an allergen such as pet dander or dust mites, which causes an allergic reaction. When a person with allergic asthma experiences a reaction, their airway is constricted due to inflammation and swelling which makes it very difficult to breathe.
Whether you have allergic asthma or another type, the symptoms are wheezing and coughing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, and waking up during the night. Further testing can confirm whether a patient is asthmatic. Give us a call to schedule your visit.
