Recent developments in allergy, asthma care during the height of the season

May 26, 2017

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America designates May as National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month each year to raise awareness for these common diseases, as it is peak season for both conditions.

Although there is no cure for asthma or allergies, proper treatment and care can prevent many deaths, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). More than 24.5 million people in the United States, including more than 6 million children aged younger than 18, have asthma, and 10 people die from asthma each day, according to AAFA. Allergies of all types, including pollen, skin and latex, affect more than 50 million Americans and the number is rising, according to AAFA.
