Dr. Bassett Contributes to Allergic Living – Can Stress Trigger Asthma Symptoms?

Q: I have moderate asthma and work in a busy accounting department. As we get into a stressful tax period, I’m finding my asthma worsens. Despite using a daily steroid inhaler, I also have to use my puffer to stop breathing difficulty two or three times a week. Can stress play a role in asthma? How do I get this under control? Dr. Bassett: Stress is a known trigger for asthma. In fact, in a study out in the U.K., almost two-thirds of people with asthma surveyed reported stress was an asthma trigger for them.

Dr. Bassett Contributes to simplemost.com – We’re Entering An Extra Miserable Allergy Season This Fall

Most people associate seasonal allergies with springtime. But fall can feel just as miserable for people who suffer from itchy eyes, sneezing and wheezing. And health experts say this fall allergy season could be a particular doozy for the more than 50 million allergy sufferers out there. Summer weather conditions and continuing warm temperatures into September have led to what doctors call a “perfect storm” for a difficult allergy season. “What we are seeing with this warmer weather pattern is that we are headed for a bumper crop of molds,” Dr. Clifford Bassett, an allergist and assistant clinical professor at New York […]

    Dr. Bassett Contributes to Women’s Health Magazine – 6 Signs Your Fall Allergies Might Be Something More Serious

Dr. Bassett Contributes to Women’s Health Magazine – 6 Signs Your Fall Allergies Might Be Something More Serious

This doesn’t necessarily mean you don’t have fall allergies—but it might not be the allergies that are causing your symptoms. If you have an itchy tongue, lip, or throat after eating certain fall foods like apples, you might actually have an oral allergy, says Clifford W. Bassett, M.D., founder and medical director of Allergy and Asthma Care of New York and author of The New Allergy Solution: Supercharge Resistance, Slash Medication, Stop Suffering. In most cases, they’re not serious but they can be uncomfortable, so it’s best to avoid the foods that bother you, if you can, Ogden says.

Dr. Bassett Contributes to SheKnows – Why Fall Allergies Always Sneak Up on You

Pumpkin spice tissues aren’t on the market (yet), but for many of us, allergies are a seasonal ritual — as familiar as the lattes, granola crunch and, yes, even pumpkin spice lip balm that accompany the first crisp, put-you-in-the-mood-for-apple-picking days of fall. We might think that fall should offer us a reprieve from the bursting blooms of spring and the sinus crud that often comes in with winter. However, according to Dr. Clifford Bassett, founder and medical director of Allergy and Asthma Care of New York, fall is actually quite a fertile time for allergies. “In most areas of the country, is a time of […]

Dr. Bassett Contributes to Today – Fall allergies will be bad thanks to ‘perfect storm’ of ragweed, mold

The ill effects of the hot, muggy summer will last long after the temperatures have started to cool, allergy experts warn. “What we are seeing with this warmer weather pattern is that we are headed for a bumper crop of molds,” says Dr. Clifford Bassett, an allergist, assistant clinical professor at New York University and author of “The New Allergy Solution: Supercharge Resistance, Slash Medication, Stop Suffering.” “Whenever you have warmer periods mixed with some precipitation, it’s the perfect storm for ragweed, weeds and mold spores,” Bassett says.

One woman in the U.K. who is allergic to nuts was left paralyzed and brain damaged after accidentally eating nuts at a restaurant—and her family is speaking out about her experience.

Dr. Bassett Contributes to SELF – Food Allergies Are Sending More and More Adults to the Hospital

Food allergies are nothing short of terrifying—especially if they’re severe. And, unfortunately, they seem to be skyrocketing. At least that’s the takeaway from a scary new report that found that insurance claims for diagnoses of anaphylactic food reactions (a life-threatening allergic reaction that can cause a person’s throat to close) have increased 377 percent across the country between 2007 and 2016. But it’s not totally clear what that jump actually means. The findings are courtesy of FAIR Health, a national non-profit that has access to 24 billion health insurance claims filed by 150 million people. Per the company’s data, claims […]

Dr. Bassett Contributes to New Jersey 101.5 – Hospital ERs not giving out the right anti-allergy medication, study finds

A new study by the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology finds half of all children who suffered a severe allergic reaction, known as anaphylaxis, and then went to a hospital emergency room had not been given epinephrine, the drug of choice to treat this condition. “It’s shocking as an allergist to see this under-utilization. We know that anaphylaxis can be life threatening,” said Dr. Clifford Bassett, a spokesman for the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.

Dr. Bassett Contributes to Self – 10 Little Ways to Keep Allergies From Ruining Your Life

If you have seasonal allergies, you know they can be a life ruiner—especially the pollen allergy symptoms. All the sneezing, wheezing, and sinus headaches can completely change your view of summer. Outdoor run? PASS. Drinks outside? Can we not? And even when you try to be careful, sometimes the symptoms will wreak havoc on your life anyway. During allergy season, pollen spores float through the air and can get all over your body, including in your eyes, Clifford W.
