Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease which is incurable. In asthma, the airways remain in the inflamed state and any kind of stimulus can trigger the unwanted symptoms. The muscles become more swollen and tighten the chest which obstructs the airflow passage and causes unwanted symptoms. The only way to deal with this condition is to keep control over the attacks and prevents the clinical symptoms like breathlessness, cough, wheezing and sputum production.

Asthma is not well treated but it is well controlled and this can be achieved by taking proper medication, following doctor’s instructions and staying away from the triggering factors.
