Many lung conditions are related to allergies and asthma, including:
- Exercise-induced asthma
- Vocal cord dysfunction
Exercise-induced asthma usually occurs 5 to 20 minutes after exercise. Symptoms can worsen in very cold and/or dry conditions.
In most cases, cough is caused by a bacterial infection or virus that disappears on its own. A persistent cough can be a sign of something more serious – like asthma. Proper diagnosis is the first step in managing this condition.
VOCAL CORD DYSFUNCTION
This happens when the vocal cords don’t open properly, causing asthma-like symptoms such as:
- Difficulty breathing
- Throat tightness
- Hoarseness and vocal changes
Many people with asthma have vocal cord dysfunction. Since the treatments are very different, proper diagnosis by our KCAA specially trained physicians is crucial.
