Seasonal allergies and asthma are inflammatory reactions of the airway that may cause wheezing, cough, and shortness of breath.
There are many potential triggers for asthmatic reactions, including environmental and seasonal allergens, exercise, cold air, and upper respiratory infections. Asthmatic reactions can range from mild to severe, such as life-threatening swelling of the airway.

Treatment and Care
Treatment focuses on medication to manage the symptoms and avoidance of triggers or allergens if possible. Options for treatment vary depending on the severity of the reaction experienced and the age of the patient.
Types of Conditions
Seasonal allergies, such as those caused by ragweed, are common in the Midwest and frequently cause a runny nose, itchy eyes, and sneezing during the spring and fall months. Seasonal allergies treatment in Leawood offers relief.
Exercise-induced asthma is sometimes seen in athletes of all ages and may cause wheezing or difficulty breathing easily while exercising.
Persistent asthma frequently requires daily medication and daily attention to an action plan. An action plan is developed with your physician and based on symptoms and “peak flow” measurement to assess severity of inflammation in the airway.
All providers at Leawood Family Care routinely manage allergies and asthma.
