Factors that Trigger an attack of Asthma

Asthma episodes can be triggered by a variety of factors, most notably: allergens, Infections, environmental
pollutants or non-specific stimuli such as exercise and emotional states. Between 50 and 70 per cent of adults with asthma suffer from allergies. In children under three years of age, viral infections are likely to be the most common trigger. After three years, allergies also begin to play an increasing role as a trigger. After 20 years of age, occupational exposure to toxic substances and allergens also can be important triggers for asthma.

Asthma symptoms are less severe and you will eventually learn how to live with them. A good asthma attack is when this gets out of hand, your own coughing violently, cant inhale and the last two individuals I saw come with an asthma attack were upon on the floor clutching in their throat and chest.

Another consideration is the humidity level in the home, which can be measured using a hygrometer. A dry atmosphere has health concerns and it is a humidifier that is used to add moisture to the air in the home. A humidifier can be either for the whole house or a small humidifier ideal for a room.

My belief is asthma is alelergy of lungs. Same allergies in other parts of the body are named differently. eg. allergic conjunctivitis, rhinitis, pharyngitis, laryngitis, tracheitis. I also belief that the allergies in muscles causes myalgia, in joints causes arthralgias and arthritis. Skin eczzema is also somehow related to it. All of these can, should happen in the same person, may be at different times, usually unpredictable for time of onset and severity. Genetic factors are definitly related, but sometimes no family history is found. May be its incidence is increasing Shahida, Bangladesh Sunday, July 24, 2011
Asthma runs in my husband's family. Unfortunately, my children have it. They take preventive meds such as Seretide.
