What is Asthma

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways of the lungs. Asthma makes breathing difficult for the affected person.

In asthma, the lining of the airways swells and the surrounding muscles get tightened. The mucus in the nose fills the airways reducing the amount of air. These conditions result in coughing, wheezing, difficulty in breathing and tightness in the chest which is known as an asthma attack.
In asthma the inside airways become swollen and inflamed, this results in irritation and makes them more vulnerable to an allergic reaction.

An asthma patient needs to get diagnosed as soon as possible to know the stage and severity. Asthma can’t be cured completely but measures to control it and improve the quality of life can be taken.
Asthma is the most common chronic medical condition present in children worldwide.
