Allergic asthma

Allergic asthma is the most widespread form of disease. In 90% of children and 50% adults having asthma allergy is available. Every second asthmatic feels worsening after exercises in cold air or at inhalation of smoke or dust. Allergens are present everywhere, and for people with allergic asthma it is important to reveal allergens, to learn how to prevent illness exacerbation.

At allergic asthma respiratory tracts are hyper responsive to some allergens. As soon as they get to respiratory tracts immune system reacts. Surrounding bronchi muscular cells strongly contract (bronchospasm), respiratory tracts inflame, filled with dense slime.

Symptoms of allergic asthma are the same as at asthma of other parentage: tussis, hissing respiration, dyspnea, and feeling of compression in thorax.

Asthma is caused by allergens rather fine to get to lungs. It is a

pollen of trees, flowers  and herbs, spores or fragments of mold, part of skin, wool or feathers, saliva of animals, excrements of dust ticks and cockroaches.

Allergic reaction in lungs can develop even at contact of skin to allergenic substance, its penetration into eyes and inside.

Specific tests help to define allergen: the test on skin by means of contact of small amount of allergen (in 20 minutes the size of blisters or reddening on skin is measured), and blood test (determination of level of immunoglobulin E is measured).

The main objective of prophylaxis is to limit contact to allergens. It is necessary to tide up often, close windows and doors. You shouldn’t use old conditioners, covered with mold, to store old unnecessary things in which ticks settle.
