Thunderstorm Asthma and Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever) - Allergy Testing Brisbane | Allergy Testing Gold Coast

May 23, 2019

Thunderstorm asthma is triggered by massive loads of small pollen allergen particles being released into the air with fast changes in wind, temperature and humidity. When it rains, or is humid, pollen grains can absorb moisture and burst open, releasing hundreds of small pollen allergen particles that can enter the small airways of the lungs (Ascia, 2019). It is important to mention that although not all individuals effected by this phenomenon suffer from Allergic Rhinitis, there is a strong association between the two. In addition since about 1 in 4 individuals suffering from Allergic Rhinitis also suffer from Asthma it is imperative to manage allergic rhinitis symptoms to avoid potential complications from thunderstrom Asthma. 

At Allergy First Brisbane and Allergy First Gold Coast we can help you identify the triggers, manage and treat the symptoms of Allergic Rhinitis.
