The most frequent chronic conditions affecting children and teenagers are asthma and allergic problems. A study directed to identify the severity and other risk factors for asthma, allergic rhinitis, and eczema in school-aged children. A total of 6,000 students from urban schools who were both boys and girls between the ages of 6-7 and 13–14 participated in a cross-sectional survey in 2019. The method of multi-stage sampling was used. The information was gathered using the ISAAC (International Study of Asthma and Allergies in Childhood) questionnaire. Present wheeze, wheeze ever, and asthma ever prevalence in children aged 6-7 years was 3.8, 4.5, and 1.8%, respectively; in those aged 13–14 years, it was 4.4, 5.9, and 3.4%. When it comes to gender (4.9, 6.0, and 2.7%, respectively), males had significantly higher rates of present wheeze, wheeze ever, and asthma than ever females (2.8, 3.6, and 2.0%, respectively) (P<0.001). With prevalence rates of 5.3%, 3.5%, and 1.0%, respectively, rhinitis, hay fever, and eczema were all prevalent in young people. Children with current wheeze were more likely to have had allergic rhinitis in the previous 12 months (30.3 % vs. 2.7%, P<0.001), as were children with hay fever (32.8% vs. 0.3%, P<0.001) and eczema (27.8% vs. 3.8%, P<0.001). The prevalence and severity of asthma symptoms were significantly related to allergic rhinitis, eczema, and gender.
