Bronchial Asthma

What is Asthma?

Asthma is a condition that can make it hard to breathe when the airways in the lungs become narrow and inflamed. Symptoms can come and go and differ in severity for each individual. Common symptoms include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest. Treatment for asthma typically consists of an inhaler as a quick relief medicine but could also include liquids or pills if long term controller medicines are needed. Consult your doctor for the correct action plan for your needs.
