Associated Conditions for Allergies
Excerpts on associated medical conditions for Allergies:
Some people with allergies develop asthma
The symptoms of asthma include coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath
due to a narrowing of the bronchial passages (airways) in the lungs, and
to excess mucus production and inflammation. Asthma can be disabling and
sometimes can be fatal. If wheezing and shortness of breath accompany
allergy symptoms, it is a signal that the bronchial tubes also have become
involved, indicating the need for medical attention. Some people may have
severe food allergies which left undiagnosed can result in illness or in
rare cases, may even be fatal. (Source: excerpt from Allergies: NWHIC
