При деца с астма алергията към фъстъци може да се открие по-трудно

A study has suggested, children with asthma may not realise they are allergic to peanuts because the symptoms are so similar.
Scientists who carried out a study in the United States said symptoms such as shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing are seen in both conditions.
They found the prevalence of known peanut allergy was similar across age groups.
Lead author, Robert Cohn, said: “Many of the respiratory symptoms of peanut allergy can mirror those of an asthma attack, and vice versa. He added that further research should be carried out into the connection.
