079: Are seasonal allergies making you miserable?

Breathing allergies affect your daily life, but early detection can limit the impact and help you breathe easy. Learning the signs and symptoms of an allergy to mold, grass, dust, animal dander, pollen or other airborne irritants help you recognize when to call an experienced pulmonary doctor for testing and treatment. The symptoms of asthma and breathing allergies often overlap, so you might need testing to determine the exact source of your breathing difficulties. Allergens are also a common trigger for asthma episodes. In fact, allergic asthma is the most common type of asthma, and most people with asthma have at least one breathing allergy as well. Listen as our guest Dr. Latonya Brown, Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine Specialist at St. Elizabeth, sits down with Dr. Oakley and Holly to discuss allergic responses and what you can do about them.
