Asthma is a chronic lung disease characterized by a decreased
ability to breathe easily. The flow of air in and out of the
lungs is obstructed in the airways that carry air to the air
sacs deep inside the lung. The larger airways (bronchi),
branches into smaller airways (bronchioles), which may be
obstructed by tightening of muscles, irritation or swelling in
the airways, and accumulation of mucous thereby resulting in
asthma. Asthma can either be acute or chronic. Symptoms
associated with asthma are coughing, wheezing, shortness of
breath and chest tightness.
Common Causes of Asthma: Allergy to pollen, dust mites, Air
pollution, Respiratory infections, Non-specific
hyperirritability, Sulfites in food and certain medications are
common causes of asthma.
