Asthma is a condition that affects the breathing process. This disease causes the bronchial tubes to swell and an excess of mucus to be produced which together can create a difficulty in breathing. Asthma Flare ups can be induced by particles in the air including dust, pollutants and other irritants that can cause discomfort and difficulty breathing in asthma sufferers. Other factors that can cause asthma related difficulties can include exercise, weather changes and respiratory infections such as cold and/or flu. Due to the severity of this dangerous condition, it is important to find an local Asthma Doctor or Asthma Specialist that can help prescribe the proper medication and lifestyle necessary to be able to live comfortably with this condition.
