When an allergy becomes asthma, what can be done to stop it?

 It's easy to dismiss this reaction as typical and innocuous, but we shouldn't.

Asthma is more likely to occur in people who are allergic to pollen. As an allergy progresses from the nose and throat to the lungs, a transition takes place.

Upon contact with the allergens, the affected patient experiences not only the typical allergy symptoms of runny and itchy eyes, cough, and pain in the ear, throat, pharynx, and palate, but also the characteristic asthmatic symptoms of bronchial tube spasms, which result in a hacking cough and difficulty breathing. Asthma episodes can be fatal, says Professor Christian Taube of the German Lung Foundation.

Anyone experiencing these seemingly innocuous allergic reactions is encouraged to contact an allergist or pulmonary medicine specialist, as immunological therapy can help to progressively diminish the allergy and avert the onset of bronchial asthma.

Most persons with bronchial asthma need long-term or permanent medication, according to the German Lung Foundation.

Professor Taube explains that these medicines do more than only treat the symptoms of asthma; they also help to reduce the inflammation of the upper and lower airways brought on by allergens.
