Asthma

The Sinusitis and Asthma Link

Many people who have asthma also suffer from chronic sinusitis.

Rhinitis

Rhinitis is a reaction that happens in the eyes, nose, and throat when allergens in the air trigger the release of histamine in the body. Histamine causes itching, swelling, and fluid to build up in the fragile linings of nasal passages, sinuses, and eyelids.

Allergies and the Immune System

Most allergic reactions are a result of an immune system that responds to a "false alarm."

Asthma and Pregnancy

With proper asthma management and good prenatal care, most women with asthma can have healthy pregnancies.

Understanding Asthma and Other Health Conditions

Some health problems happen more often in people with asthma. The problems can make asthma symptoms worse and more difficult to control.
