What are the Symptoms of Allergic Asthma?

In allergic asthma the symptoms are triggered by an allergic reaction to some inhaled substance, for instance dust mites, pet dander, pollen, or mold. The affected individual will experience coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath or rapid breathing, and chest tightness. The condition causes airway obstruction and inflammation.

What are the Causes of Allergic Asthma?

While there may be a genetic predisposition for allergies and asthma, the usual culprits are agents in the environment. This can be anything from air pollution, to dust mites, mold, pet dander, tobacco smoke, and even the presence of cockroaches in the home or workplace. Even the holidays, when foods not normally present are served or specific plant materials are used in decorations can trigger attacks.

What are piles?

Piles are swellings on the inside of the anal canal, the short, muscular tube that connects the rectum (back passage) with the anus, in areas known as the anal cushions. They are round swellings that can reach the size of a grape. Piles are not varicose veins.

Causes
