 What Is Allergic Asthma?

Allergic asthma is triggered by inhaling allergens. Allergens are things in the environment like mold, pollen, pet dander and dust mites that, on their own, are usually harmless. However, for someone with an allergy they can set off a chain reaction in the immune system, causing the airways in the lungs to tighten and become inflamed.
