The upper (nose and throat) and lower airways (lungs) are linked. Allergens that affect the inner lining of your nose, i.e., the nasal mucosa may result in changes in your lung tissue, i.e., bronchial hyper response. The interaction between a person’s nasal passages and lungs may be mediated through the trigeminal nerves which is the largest pair of cranial nerves in your body.
