Exercise induced asthma is a type of asthma that is experienced during strenuous exercise. The more formal term for exercised induced asthma is exercise induced broncho-constriction. This term is preferred because the exercise induces a narrowing of the airways but is not the root cause of asthma. Occupational asthma is a type of asthma that is caused by allergens in the work environment. It is caused by inhaling fumes, gasses, dust or other harmful substances.
Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell that play a role in how the body responds to allergens. These end stage cells are formed in the bone marrow and are known to be pro-inflammatory. Eosinophil cells are a characteristic feature of the pathology of asthma. They are more prevalently found in patients who suffer from occupational and aspirin sensitive asthma, though they can be found in all types of asthma.
Cough-Variant asthma is a less common form of asthma that is difficult to diagnose. The only symptom associated with this form is, cough. It presents as a dry and non-productive cough meaning that the cough does not rid the lungs and airways of mucus. Nocturnal asthma is a very serious form of asthma. It occurs when asthma symptoms are present at night or during your sleep cycle. It is commonly in children representing almost half of the child asthma sufferers.

Kitchens, bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements and attics are all breeding grounds for mold and mildew. These rooms have a higher probability of producing mold and mildew because they contain water pipes, drain lines, and steam producing appliances and activities. All of this contributes to indoor air problems and allergy symptoms. Control the moisture and you control mold and mildew in your home.
