Allergy-related diseases commonly occur in about 35% of population with the number continuously increasing. A simple explanation for the increase in the number of people in the world affected with allergies, including asthma, is the increased sensitization to indoor allergens(substances that cause allergy) as well as the sanitary living environment of Westernized households.
Patients with one allergy often are allergic to several other allergens and also have other family members who have the same allergies. Therefore, the allergy clinic is planning to implement an "asthma clinic", "chronic cough clinic", "allergic rhinitis clinic" and "atopic dermatitis clinic" for systematic and effective treatment.
