Asthma and Other Allergic Pulmonary Disorders

When it becomes difficult to breathe, your whole life can be made more difficult. Daily tasks can become triggers for your respiratory issues and cause you to miss out on many aspects of your life to avoid having an episode. Respiratory disorders can result from a variety of factors and can be treated with a wide range of medications and topical treatments so that you can go back to living your life without your disorder holding you back. 

What Is Asthma?

Asthma is a respiratory disorder in which a person’s airways become inflamed, narrow, and begin to swell. Many factors can contribute to the development of asthma; however, most professionals believe over-exposure to allergens may contribute to the development of asthma. Those who have asthma may experience symptoms such as:

  • Extra mucus production
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Chest pain
  • Wheezing
  • Coughing

These symptoms can be controlled through a number of treatments. If you are experiencing a multitude of these symptoms and they are negatively affecting your life, it is best to contact a medical professional to receive the best treatment possible for your specific concerns. 

What Are Allergic Pulmonary Disorders?

Allergic Pulmonary Disorders are respiratory illnesses similar to asthma. While various factors can cause asthma, allergic pulmonary disorders are solely caused by overexposure to certain allergens. Allergens such as mold, dust, fungus, and irritating chemicals can trigger an allergic pulmonary disorder. Some people who experience an allergic pulmonary disorder may suffer from extreme coughing that may or may not consist of blood as well as fevers. 

If these allergens continue to irritate the person experiencing the disorder, that person could sustain significant lung damage. It is important to determine which allergen is causing the symptoms to be removed, or patients’ exposure can become limited to protect their health.
