Is there a connection between Asthma and Allergy ?
Dr James Li from the non-profit Mayo clinic in the US thinks “Yes”.
He explains in a recent article that the same substances that trigger hayfever such as pollen, dust mites or pet dander may also cause asthma signs and symptoms.
An allergic reaction occurs when your body mistakenly identifies a harmless substance as a harmful invading one. Your body attempts to protect you by binding antibodies to the invading allergen and the chemicals released in this process ( such as excess histamine ) lead to you experiencing allergy signs and symptoms.
The National Asthma Council Australia also agree that there is a connection between asthma and allergy.
