There is no miracle diet that cure your asthma. However, it’s known that food allergies can worse your condition.

As you know, triggers can vary from person to person. So, unless you have this type of allergy, foods are unlikely to cause you an asthma attack! 🙂

What are the main symptoms of food allergies?

The most common symptoms of food allergies are eczema, redness of the skin, rash, nausea, stomach pain, vomiting and diarrhea. If you’re asthmatic, you may also experience nasal congestion, coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.

Can you develop food allergies at any age?

Yes, it’s possible. Most food allergies start in childhood. However, some asthmatics develop an allergy to foods they used to eat with no problem!
