TRIGGERS Why am I allergic to some things and not to others? eing atopic does not mean that you will become allergic to any allergen in particular, just that you may, at some stage of your life, develop an allergy to something (atopy is discussed in more detail in the section ‘Allergy explained’ at the beginning of this chapter). It seems that the way in which you first encounter an allergen is important in determining whether you will become allergic to it, as is the scale of your exposure to it.
What’s in all these different devices? Do they all work the same way? nhalers are the most efficient way of giving asthma medications, as the drug is delivered directly to the place they are needed (the lungs) by breathing them in. The drugs work more quickly when inhaled than medications taken by mouth and much smaller amounts are needed to produce the same results, which in turn reduces the likelihood of side effects. Even small children are rarely prescribed medications to take by mouth because, with the newer inhaler devices available, even a baby can take medications by inhalation.
People who have had asthma for a while may get used to having narrowed airways, and begin to consider this normal. This makes them under-estimate how bad their asthma is at any one time, and leads to dangerous delays in seeking medical help when things get worse. This is where measurement of your lung function with a small device called a peak flow meter (peak flow measurements are discussed in the section ‘Diagnosis and assessment’ later in this chapter) can be very helpful, as it gives an objective measure of asthma severity.
