What Causes Allergies, Asthma, and Allergic Asthma?
Allergies occur when you breathe in allergens, like pollen, mold, or dust mites, and your immune system tries to protect you from them. This protection can take many forms, including expulsion by sneezing, coughing, or watering eyes. Asthma happens when your immune system overreacts to target substances by narrowing and inflaming the bronchial tubes in your lungs. These conditions can occur separately or, in some cases, simultaneously.
When they coincide, a condition known as allergic asthma can sensitize your airways to one or more allergens. When you breathe these allergens in, your airway muscles contract and your throat becomes inflamed and coated in thick mucus. This overreaction made by your immune system can cause the following symptoms in varying degrees of severity:
- Inability to catch your breath
- Quick, shallow breathing
- Tightening of chest
When to Seek Help in NJ & NY
Even though there are many different rescue medications and at-home treatments for allergies, asthma, and their combination, it’s important to know when to seek the help of a medical professional. Seek help right away if you notice any of the following:
- Inability to fully inhale or exhale
- Acute shortness of breath and difficulty speaking
- Bluish color in nails, lips, or face
- Rapid breathing, coughing, or wheezing
- Pained chest muscles
- Confusion or exhaustion
- Fainting or collapsing
Depending on the severity of your symptoms, you may need to dial 9-1-1 to receive emergency medical transportation. However, if you are experiencing milder effects, visit Chai Urgent Care to get treated.
