Asthma

Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, leading to recurring episodes of wheezing, breathlessness, chest tightness, and coughing. It is a common condition that affects people of all ages, and its severity can vary from mild to severe. Asthma symptoms can be triggered by various factors, including allergens (such as pollen, pet dander, or dust mites), respiratory infections, exercise, stress, or irritants (such as smoke or strong odors). Management of asthma typically involves two components: controlling symptoms and preventing exacerbations. This is achieved through a combination of medications, such as bronchodilators and anti-inflammatory drugs, and lifestyle measures, including avoiding triggers, maintaining a healthy lifestyle, and having an asthma action plan. Regular monitoring and check-ups with healthcare providers are essential to ensure optimal asthma control.
