Allergy and Asthma

Allergies are among the most common health problems, affecting millions of people. They have many different sources – grass and pollen, animal dander, insect venom, food and drug, immune disorders and more. From chronic breathing issues to severe skin rashes, allergies can cause many problems. If you suffer from allergies, you know how much this chronic condition can affect your quality of life.

Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases in our country, affecting millions of children and adults. Asthma, even asthma in children, can be successfully treated and controlled with the right care.
