What is Asthma?

Asthma is a chronic disease of the airways which makes breathing difficult. Inflammation of the air passage results in temporary narrowing causing the flow of oxygen to decrease resulting in wheezing, coughing, chest tightness and shortness of breath.

Causes of Asthma are unknown but most are hereditary. Symptoms can be made worse by smoking, living in poor conditions or heavily polluted areas.
