What is Asthma?
September 15, 2014
What is Asthma?
Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

For some people, asthma is a minor nuisance. For others, it can be a major problem that interferes with daily activities and may lead to a life-threatening asthma attack.

Asthma can't be cured, but its symptoms can be controlled. Because asthma often changes over time, it's important that you work with your doctor to track your signs and symptoms and adjust treatment as needed.

We trade in the sweltering hot, dog days of summer for the cool crisp days of autumn. The leaves change, the days get shorter and the nights get longer. The Fall season brings many changes to not only our weather but to the environment surroundings as well.

At SIMED Allergy & Asthma the Fall season means Ragweed Season for our patients and a significant increase in allergic reactions. Ragweed usually begins in the late part of summer around the Labor Day holiday and it peaks in mid September and last up to November. For some people, pollen is a nuisance, for other it really interferes with daily living such as having a constant runny nose. constant sneezing especially in the morning, itchy eyes wihich you cannot scratch enough. Some may also even develop asthma symptoms.

What could you do if you have Ragweed Allergy?
One possible way is to minimize outdoor activities early in the morning, stay indoors in air-conditioned environment, and wash off quickly when you come indoors. If avoidance is not possible, you may try over the counter antihistamines good for itchy eyes, itchy nose, & sneezing but you need to take them on regular, preventive basis during your individual pollen season which may vary from weeks to months. Steroid nose sprays are one of the best medications available for nasal congestion which used to require a prescription.
