Asthma is a condition of impaired breathing caused by airway spasm and inflammation.
Some people have very mild, intermittent asthma, while other people struggle with daily asthma symptoms. Symptoms vary, but include:
- shortness of breath
- chest tightness
Asthma triggers can include:
- cigarette smoke
- respiratory viruses (cold, flu)
- allergens (dust, pollen, mold)
