Causes of Asthma
Some of the known causes of asthmatic attacks include allergies, pollution, genetic, other diseases. Allergies have the peculiarity of getting detected only when contact is made with the asthma inducing agent. These allergies almost always start episodes of asthmatic attacks. Thus, it is highly recommended to stay away from known asthma causing agents. Introduction of pollutants also spark episodes of asthmatic attacks. People working at hazardous work environments are at higher risks of developing asthma than others. Apart from these, asthma also develops due to genetic conditions and other diseases like atopic eczema, allergic rhinitis, etc.
