Studies show that asthma is often associated with psychological diseases. One case showed that a boy only developed asthma when he got a baby brother, and the asthma came conveniently as the new baby was getting all the parent's attention... hmm interesting? Think about when your asthma started and consider if there was anything in your life at that time which affected you. A death in the family? Moving houses? Moving countries? Changing schools? Taking exams? of course psychological reasons only account for some of asthma cases, not all of them.
I am allergic to dust and mites. It cause a growth in my nose, thus I can't breathe through my nose properly - all my life I have to suffer from people telling me to "breathe" properly etc - because breathing in and out of the mouth, while struggling with the nose i think make it sounds like breathing heavy.
Tried millions of medications! there is one, which is giving me a bit of hope - and it working....hopefully one day.....
i have hayfever and a dust allergy and am allergic to animal fur.....
also developed asthma when i was 10....
Also due to my hayfever, when my eyes were itchy i used to itch them and ended up with a blockage in my tear duct, and had a little lump in my bottom eyelid, luckily jus before i was gonna have an operation for it, it went!! but now it has come back a bit but not as bad as before!!
Well I seem to have always had asthma so I don't think it applies to me!
i'm also allergic to penicillin, i am allergic to something else in lucozade sport i think because that always causes me to come up in hives. The effects of penicillin are far worse though. I'm talking HEAD 2 TOE!
Also, I suppose there are many different causes of allergies - some genetic and some purely due to exposure (you can become allergic to certain insects, such as locusts, just by working with them). It's quite possible that some people can be allergic to the same thing, but that their allergy arose in different ways.
