Allergy and Asthma

Symptom Check

This is usually the time of year when we find ourselves asking, “is it a cold or an allergy? Think you know the difference?

Since not all sniffles are the same, we sought the advice of Ed Neuzil, Board Certified Advanced Practice Registered Nurse at Allergy Sinus & Asthma Family Health Center . He explained what we need to know about both colds and allergies.

Clearing The Air

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, is the umbrella term for a collection of different lung diseases. They include chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive airways disease. Over time, patients with COPD are at increased risk for developing lung cancer because of existing impairments in lung function.
