Asthma

Asthma is a common long term condition that can cause coughing, wheezing and breathlessness. It varies from person to person in terms of severity. An asthma problem can be gradual or quiet sudden. This is often known as an asthma attack. Asthma is caused by inflammation of small tubes called bronchi. They become inflamed and sensitive which causes Asthma. When something irritates the lungs, the airways become narrow and a sticky mucus is formed (phlegm). Common asthma triggers include dust, pollen, exercise, animal fur and viral infections.
