An allergic asthma is a bronchitis condition the symptoms of which are: attacks of breathlessness and a dry cough (allergic cough). Allergic asthma is a problem affecting children and adults. The reason behind attacks of breathlessness and a dry cough are allergens, i.e. substances which we are allergic to. The attacks are sudden and appear just after contact with the allergens. An allergic cough is tiring, long-lasting and makes it difficult to catch a breath. Patients often complain of breathing problems.
Allergic asthma is most often caused by inhaling allergens: house dust mites, plant pollens (grass, trees, flowers), mould endospores, pet’s hair (cat, dog). Among the causes of asthma we can also list food allergies, medical drugs and others.
When treating allergic asthma it is recommended to avoid contact with allergens. If there is such a possibility, the doctor can order desensitisation – specific immunotherapy. There are certain restrictions to the use of desensitisation including, taking the following medication: inhalant glucocorticoids, beta2-mimetics.
