Asthma

At Allergy Asthma and Sinus Centers, we follow the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute’s recommendations on skin testing and allergy shots for the treatment of asthma. Your regimen may also include medications and inhalants. With proper care you should be able to lead completely normal lives-stay active, sleep through the night, and avoid having your lives disrupted by asthma attacks.
