Asthma is a chronic condition in which your airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus. When the airways react, the muscles around them tighten. This narrows the airways, causing less air to flow into the lungs. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
There are no cures for Asthma at this time, but its symptoms can be controlled. Over time the severity can change. Therefore it is important to have a consistent check up with your primary physician.
Treatment of acute symptoms can be administered through a short acting asthma inhaler. Often times the best thing to do is try and avoid environmental triggers such as pet dander and pollen.
