EFFECTIVE ASTHMA TREATMENT

ALLERGY, ASTHMA AND IMMUNOLOGY

For most people, springtime is a beautiful season when the outdoors wakes up after a sleepy winter. Trees and flowers bloom and the sweet aroma of new life floats on the air. But for those people who suffer from allergies, pleasant aromas are not the only things carried in the breeze. During this time, a majority of asthma sufferers will experience an increase in symptoms with the onset of springtime. If you want to prevent springtime allergens from wreaking havoc on your asthma, visit Oak Brook Allergists for asthma treatments in Downers Grove, Naperville, Elmhurst, and Plainfield IL. Common Allergens that Cause an Asthma Attack An asthma attack can result from a number of different environmental allergens. These can include pet dander, grass, pollen, dust mites, and mold spores. Two things happen when a patient has a reaction to these particles. When allergens enter the lung, histamine is released within the airways. This leads to a constriction of the airway, resulting in:

• Chest tightness
• Fits of coughing
• Shortness of breath
• Wheezing
If these symptoms are not properly treated, over time, this bronchoconstriction can progress into chronic inflammation and an increased vulnerability to these environmental changes.
