Allergic Asthma is a specific type of Asthma that occurs when allergens or irritants are inhaled. Once inhaled, these substances cause reactions in your airways. Symptoms of Allergic Asthma are the same as those seen in other types of asthma and include: wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness and coughing. The treatment plan your doctor chooses for you may be different depending on which type of asthma you have.
It is very important to follow your doctor's instructions and not skip any medication. To learn more about Allergic Asthma medications, treatment and ongoing management of the disease, please read the information below.
