Allergy-Triggered Asthma

Allergy-triggered asthma is a type of asthma commonly seen in children. Symptoms of asthma in these children are brought on by allergic reactions to things such as dust mites, pollen, or animal dander. Although not all asthma is triggered by allergies, and not all allergies cause symptoms of asthma, an estimated 75% to 85% of children with asthma have some type of allergy.
