Asthma is a disease that develops on the allergic ground in most of the cases, although not always. This is more evident, especially for asthma that begins in childhood. Other allergic diseases (rhinosinusitis, conjunctivitis, dermatitis, urticaria) may coexist with asthma, or asthma may not be present while these diseases exist.On the contrary, he may not be allergic although he has asthma.
Asthma is often manifested by shortness of breath. Chest congestion, cough, wheezing are other common complaints. Not all of them may be together in every patient, and sometimes they may only appear as a wheezing, rustling sound when coughing or breathing.
Various risk factors have been identified that cause asthma, contribute to the development of asthma, or trigger seizures in people with asthma. Some of these are avoidable, correctable situations. All over the world, animals such as cats that feed on house dust mites; Pests and mold fungi such as cockroaches, central heating beetles are the most common causes of asthma. Medicines such as pollen (tree, grass, grass), aspirin and occupational stimulants exposed in some workplaces also lead to the development of allergic sensitivity resulting in asthma.
In addition, contact with cigarette smoke, respiratory infections, air pollution, some foods and additives added to them contribute to the development of asthma, especially in early childhood. In addition to all of the factors that show causal relationships, variables such as climate changes (foggy, rainy, indoor weather), psychogenic stresses, and exercise can trigger seizures in asthmatics, but not in those without asthma. Again, some conditions such as sinusitis, polyps in the nose, leakage of stomach acid back into the esophagus are common in asthmatics and make the treatment and control of the disease difficult.
