Allergies are mostly inherited and passed on to generations. Around 50 million Americans suffer from some form of allergy every year. Allergies cause sneezing, runny nose, itching, or/and swelling depending on the type.
Allergens and dust particles in the air, smoke, and other such substances can affect a baby or young children to develop asthma and breathing issues.
Some people have a family history of breathing issues that can get passed on. Genetics can also cause a person to have low lung capacity which may also cause asthma.
Asthma more often than not can come about due to allergies as asthmatic patients usually suffer allergies such as dust allergies or food allergies.
Young boys are more susceptible to asthma according to research than girls while later in life women are more susceptible.
Excessive exposure to dust, chemicals, and allergens can cause long-term asthma to develop.
This can raise your chances of developing asthma and even worsening it in case you already have it.
