Who gets Asthma and Allergies?
Asthma and allergies have no respect for age, gender, race or socioeconomic situations. Anyone can be affected by them at any age, bit they are most common in children. They can also reoccur after several years of being in remission. Genetic factors play a part in the development of asthma and allergies. Besides heredity, susceptible people may also have other factors working against them such as hormones, stress, smoke, perfume, or other environmental irritants .
Even though allergy doesn’t discriminate, there is a strong genetic component, however. Your risk of developing allergies is greater if your parents have allergies. Your risk is 60-75% if both parents have allergies, 30-50% if one parent has allergies and about 15% if neither parent has allergies.
If you have allergy, you may be allergic to more than one substance. You are more at rick for allergies if your have :
- Other family members with allergies
- Breathing problems, asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
- Frequent ear, respiratory, sinus or nasal infections
- Intense and repetitive exposure to an allergen early in life
- Past incidents of sever allergic reactions
