Obesity and allergy illnesses, such as asthma and allergic rhinitis, are becoming more common not just in adults, but also in youngsters. Obesity has been shown in experimental and clinical trials to have an influence not just on asthma but also on other allergy illnesses. Asthma and allergic rhinitis are two examples of chronic inflammatory disorders of the airways. Obesity is a growing paediatric condition that is a risk factor for the development of asthma. Obese children with asthma have more severe asthma that does not respond well to routine asthma medication. Children with asthma, on the other hand, may be at a higher risk of obesity, implying that the association between asthma and obesity appears to be interconnected. Obesity’s effect in the development of allergic rhinitis is unclear, however allergic rhinitis may have an influence on obesity.

Childhood obesity is sometimes thought to be less dangerous than adult obesity due to the higher risk of consequences in obese adults. The allergy confounders of obesity and the effects of allergy illnesses on obesity are discussed in this article. In children with allergic illnesses, keeping the BMI within the normal range is critical.
