Overview of Respiratory Allergies

Respiratory problems such as asthma, hay fever and sinusitis often go hand in hand with allergies. In fact, the main trigger for asthma is allergies. Around 80% of asthma sufferers are allergic to airborne particles such as pollen, mold spores and animal dander. The nasal passage is an entryway to your lungs for allergens, and the nose and sinuses are frequently linked with lung disorders. An inflammation of the sinuses or nasal passages can trigger reflexes and lead to asthma attacks.

Asthma, hay fever and sinusitis can cause uncomfortable symptoms like a runny or blocked nose; red, itchy or watery eyes; a tight chest, coughing or wheezing; and difficulty breathing. Our experts will be able to determine the underlying cause of your condition and work with you to customize a treatment plan to bring you relief from these symptoms.
