Allergies: Allergies are the must common triggers. Among them, animal dander, dust mites, pollen and other allergens that are airborne. In addition, cold air, exercise pollution and second hand smoke are common non-allergy triggers.

Depends: In childhood it is often the presence of inflammation from any of a number of infectious agents, often viral. Only 5% are thought related to allergy triggers but these can aggravate any compromised kid.As they age, the pattern may change. Exercise triggered events are common in the teen years but this pattern seems to fade in adulthood.
