About Asthma

Asthma is a chronic disease that causes the airways (bronchial tubes) in the lungs, to become inflamed, narrow and swell making it difficult for air to move in and out of the lungs, causing symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, excess mucus production, shortness of breath and/or chest tightness. There is no cure for asthma, but the condition can be managed with proper medical treatment. Asthma affects people of all ages, but most often starts during childhood, and may be referred to as bronchial asthma. There are different forms of asthma, including exercise-induced bronchoconstriction (EIB), exercise-induced asthma (EIA), allergic asthma, occupational asthma and childhood asthma.
