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)

Associated conditions are those which appear statistically related, but do not have a clear cause or effect relationship.

In some cases, there may be overlap between this list and risk factors for Allergies.
