Respiratory allergies symptoms:

Allergies are more rear in developing countries, so it has something to do with the overall environment as well as microbes. There are also seasonal allergies that can cause shortness of breath, runny nose, and other problems, but that is a milder level. Some research suggests that the main triggers for allergies in general that go hand in hand with an imbalance of the immune system have to do with air filters, hand sanitizers, anti-bacterial cleaners and other similar ones.

The immune system needs some bacterial attacks to learn what kind of things and which way can hurt same as microbes, etc. from the environment that causes no threat to the health. This “experience” is especially important for kids whose parents think they should live in a sterile environment without any microbes or bacteria. Later is up to gut where microbes meet immune system. The food each consumes also changes the gut microbes because some trigger more antibiotic approach by destroying microorganisms.

Sometimes also taking antibiotics, e.g., for acne, can promote having asthma. You can find information with undeniable facts that antibiotics that are used for babies up to one-year-old increase the number of them who will later have asthma. Also for adults antibiotics and other medicine might have negative effects on the micro bacterial environment, trigger inflammation and other problems. So also allergic asthma treatment should be sought very carefully depending on each person. Allergic asthma home remedies are not always the best choice to achieve a good result in the long term.
