What is the difference between asthma and allergies?
The most common type of asthma is allergic asthma, where allergies trigger asthma symptoms. Approximately 8 out of 10 children with allergies also have asthma and roughly 6 out of 10 adults with asthma have at least one allergy. Identifying and avoiding allergens that trigger symptoms is an effective treatment for allergic asthma. You may also be able to reduce asthma symptoms if you can cut down on the number of allergens in your life.
Can allergic asthma go away?
There are several stages of asthma, ranging from mild to severe. People may not have any symptoms in the mildest form of asthma. The first step in treating asthma is an early diagnosis. In some patients with chronic cough, diagnosis of asthma may be delayed. However, an accurate diagnosis of asthma will lead to starting the appropriate, early medical therapy, where you can then learn how to avoid triggers that make asthma symptoms worse.
