Asthma and Allergic Rhinitis (Hayfever)

Allergic Rhinitis is very common in Ireland and between 60% and 80% of people who have asthma also have allergic rhinitis.  Both asthma and allergic rhinitis are caused by an allergic reaction and the two conditions frequently overlap.

Many of the same allergens are known to trigger asthma and allergic rhinitis.  If allergic rhinitis is treated effectively it could reduce asthma symptoms and may even help prevent the development of asthma.
