About asthma
Asthma is a disease that affects the lungs and is characterized by wheezing, coughing, breathlessness, and chest tightness. It is a chronic ailment of the respiratory tract, which is caused by the obstruction of the flow of air and bronchospasms, where the muscles around the respiratory tract swell up. The disease is believed to be caused by genetic as well as environmental factors. The American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology classifies asthma under four categories: exercise-induced asthma, allergic asthma, occupational asthma, and childhood asthma.
