Is Asthma an allergic reactionWatch
Can someone please explain this to me?
No one here can really say if your asthma is due to allergies or bad lungs, to get a real answer I'd suggest going to the GP and getting yourself checked out because if you don't know it might become a problem in the future. If you do not want to go to the GP, make a list of everywhere you get an asthma attack and see if the places have anything in common such as lots of dust, smoke or after you eat something specific that could trigger it.
Again I'm not a scientist so some of the things I have said might be wrong so feel free to correct me in any way.
It also means that I'm allergic to dust. When I'm doing a deep clean of my student room for example, all the dust kicks up and blocks my airways more than God already did, and I get an attack. That is an allergy. The same goes for cats - their molting cat hair gets caught in my airways.
What does bother me though is that I'm a smoker, and cigarettes don't give me an attack. If someone can explain that to me, I can finally stop putting it down to m a g i c
