Two of the most common chronic diseases are allergies and asthma. Allergies are when the body’s immune system sees a substance as dangerous and reacts to it. Asthma is described as wheezing, coughing, breathlessness and chest tightness , and is caused by the airways narrowing or swelling. Allergies and asthma are often, but not always, seen together. Nearly 45 million Americans are diagnosed with allergies or asthma.
