ANAPHYLAXIS

Anaphylaxis is a severe allergic reaction. The patient can have serious breathing difficulties, and can even lose consciousness and die if not treated quickly. The allergic reaction may involve the whole body. Anaphylaxis is a medical emergency and requires immediate medical treatment.

Symptoms of anaphylaxis are listed below:

  • Swelling of the lining of the mouth, tongue, lips and throat; causing breathing difficulty.  
  • Urticaria (hives)  
  • Nausea and vomiting.  
  • Cold and clammy skin.  
  • Rapid heartbeat.  
  • Feeling faint or lightheaded.  
  • An unexpectedly abrupt feeling of intense anxiety or impending doom.

ASTHMA

Asthma is a chronic (long-term) lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways. Asthma causes recurring periods of wheezing (a whistling sound when you breathe), chest tightness, shortness of breath, and coughing. The coughing often occurs at night or early in the morning, but an asthma attack can occur at any time.

An asthma attack can happen when you are exposed to “asthma triggers.” Your triggers can be very different from those of someone else with asthma. Some of the most common triggers are tobacco smoke, dust mites, outdoor air pollution, strong smells (such as perfumes or cleaning products) pet dander, and mold.
