Asthma is a breathing condition that causes the airways to narrow and swell, producing extra mucus in the chest. This blockage will make breathing extremely difficult and it can trigger coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Some people will experience asthma as only a small nuisance. For others, it can be a more troublesome problem that interferes with daily activities and can even lead to a life-threatening asthma attack.
Unfortunately, there is no cure for asthma, but the symptoms can be controlled to reduce the effects on day-to-day activities. Because asthma can change over time, the best way to keep treatment at its most effective is to work with your doctor to keep track of developing signs and symptoms.
