Hi. I have asthma and have just received allergy testing results requested by my consultant which have been negative- so not shown any allergies at all to dust/ pollen etc. which I am shocked about as dust and pollen are my main triggers and I have been on nasal sprays for rhinitis which I assumed was caused by pollen. I often sneeze and caugh daily.
Can anyone please help me to understand what this then means? Does this blood work one hundred percent rule out allergic asthma and so therefore I have the ‘intrinsic asthma’ type? Can this type of asthma still be triggered by dust and pollen even though these are not actual allergies?
Also, does this mean that I could stop taking montelukast and fexofenadine if I do not have allergies? And instead be managed with stronger inhalers as opposed to ‘add-ons’ which maybe more for allergic-asthma?
Sorry for lots of questions! I am just very confused now the allergy asthma seems to be ruled out.
