Allergies and Asthma Q & A

What is asthma?

Asthma is a common respiratory disorder that impacts nearly 30 million Americans, mostly children and teenagers. The illness is characterized by narrowing of your airways and difficulty breathing.

What are the symptoms of asthma?

When you have an asthma attack, you’re likely to experience any or all of the following:

  • Mucus-laden cough
  • Tightness in your chest
  • Rapid breathing
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath

Each person experiences asthma differently. That’s why Dr. Cabrera conducts a comprehensive exam and takes a health history to understand how your asthma impacts your routine and how she can customize your treatment to serve you best.

What are allergies?

As your immune system responds to substances in the environment, foreign invaders, or foods you eat, it may trigger an abnormal reaction, known as an allergy. Top allergens are pet dander, dust mites, molds, plant pollen, medicines, food, and insects.

What are the symptoms that allergies produce?

Depending on the type of allergy you have, you may experience a variety of symptoms that affect various parts of your body. In general, allergies produce:

  • Watery, itchy eyes
  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Stomach cramps
  • Skin rash
  • Hives
  • Congestion
  • Sore throat
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Pale skin color
  • Swelling tongue
  • Dizziness
  • Feeling faint

With a variety of testing methods, Dr. Cabrera determines your exact allergies so you can avoid known triggers and keep your symptoms at bay.
