Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and may produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, chest tightness, a whistling sound (wheezing) when you breathe out and shortness of breath. Allergic asthma is the most common type of asthma
For some people, asthma is a minor nuisance. For others, it can be a major problem that interferes with daily activities and may lead to a life-threatening asthma attack.
Are you suffering from Asthma?
- Coughing, especially at night, during exercise or when laughing
- Difficulty breathing
- Chest tightness
- Shortness of breath
- Wheezing (a whistling or squeaky sound in your chest when breathing, especially when exhaling)
Asthma can’t be cured, but its symptoms can be controlled. Because asthma often changes over time, it’s important that you work with your Allergist to track your signs and symptoms and adjust your treatment as needed.
