Allergic diseases are a public health problem in industrialized countries due to the increasing number of allergies related to Western lifestyle. The multiplicity of organs affected by allergy (skin (atopic dermatitis), airway epithelium (respiratory allergy), and digestive tract (food allergy)) worsens the prognosis of each of the allergic diseases and specially asthma. The importance of allergy in management of asthma is also underlined by the risk of fatal or near fatal acute asthma attacks due to multiple allergic sensitizations. Preliminary studies suggest that specific treatment of allergy could change the asthma course.
