Asthma

Many people have asthma, and it has become common for people of all ages. Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the lungs and usually is diagnosed in children. Asthma is a long-term disease with no cure.

Asthma symptoms include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. Triggers are often exercise or allergens. Smokers are also more likely to get asthma than people who don’t smoke, so if you have asthma, it can help to quit smoking or try to stay away from smokers. Most people with asthma use an inhaler in case of an asthma attack. Certain jobs and being overweight can also be a cause of asthma. Asthma has no exact cause and therefore has no cure. Asthma needs to be diagnosed by a doctor to receive medication. Sometimes asthma does go away, sometimes after a year, sometimes after a decade. There are different kinds of asthma as well: exercise-induced asthma (asthma symptoms during exercise), allergic asthma (asthma from allergies), and occupational asthma (asthma from working conditions). There are other types caused by other things, but one common type is asthma not caused by anything. This is the most common type of asthma. People all around the world have asthma, and more than likely, it’s here to stay.
