You may wonder what allergies and asthma have in common besides making you miserable. A lot, as it turns out. Allergies and asthma often occur together.
The same substances that trigger hay fever symptoms may also cause asthma symptoms, such as shortness of breath, wheezing and chest tightness. This is called allergic asthma or allergy-induced asthma. Certain substances, such as pollen, dust mites and pet dander, are common triggers. In some people, skin or food allergies can cause asthma symptoms.
The physicians and staff in our Allergy & Asthma Department are highly skilled in treating patients with asthma and/or allergies. They firmly believe that patients with allergies and those with asthma should not be satisfied until their allergies and/or asthma are under control and their quality of life is improved.
