Correlation of Asthma/Allergies to Career Stress

What are the effects of a stressful job (counselor) when that person has a past history of 15 years or more of allergies?

Thanks for asking about stress and allergies.

Allergy symptoms when out of control will cause a patient to have more stress since it is stressful for the brain to experience difficulty breathing.

Stress itself does not cause allergies.

Hope this info helps.

Good luck.
