Abstract

[Airborne allergens are one of the major causes of asthma. People living in urban areas more frequently experience allergic respiratory symptoms than those living in rural areas. Seasonal exposure to outdoor allergens, (pollens, and molds) is an important cause. Identification and reduction of exposure to allergens is a very important part of the management of respiratory allergic diseases. Indoor humidity and water damage are important factors in the production of mite and mold allergens, and discarded human food items are important sources of proliferation of cockroaches and mice.]
