What’s Causing Your Asthma?
Could it be one of these non-allergic asthma triggers?
While allergic asthma triggers only cause problems for people who are allergic to them, non-allergic triggers can be called equal opportunity offenders. What do I mean by this?
When you are allergic, it is like
having the key that turns the switch that starts the engine of asthmatic inflammation. No key (no allergy), no inflammation.
With non-allergic triggers (especially the irritants listed below), no
key is necessary. The irritant itself pushes a start button that turns the
engine on directly. In short, if you
have asthma, any of the triggers listed here can harm or affect you. You need not be allergic.
