Respiratory allergy.


:Allergic rhinitis (AR) and asthma are common respiratory allergic disorders which are increasing globally more in developed countries. Although much has been written about childhood asthma and guidelines published by various international and national fora, not much information is available on AR. This is most common in children, is a significant risk factor for developing asthma, is a common comorbidity with asthma and affects quality of life. This paper highlights the risk factors for developing respiratory allergy asthma and AR, linkages between them and the management issues, particularly in relation to the allergic or allergological aspects as they have important bearing on management of children suffering from respiratory allergy. Specific immunotherapy (SIT) is re-emerging as useful therapy which alone has the potential to modify the natural history of disease and prevent the 'allergic march'. Timely diagnosis, correct management including timely referrals can ensure good quality life for those suffering from respiratory allergies.
