Asthma Return to Conditions Treated

  • Lung disease caused by narrowing of airways in the lungs which can be partially or completely reversible.
  • Asthma causes excessive mucus production and inflammation in the airways which can be reversible if treated early.
  • Symptoms include Coughing, Wheezing, Chest Congestion/Tightness and Shortness of Breath.
  • Asthma triggers are numerous but include allergens, viral infections, irritants such as smoke exposure, and weather.
  • Controlling asthma involves identifying and avoiding triggers as much as possible.
  • A family history of asthma increases the risk of developing asthma.
  • Asthma can be either intermittent or persistent. Sometimes, chronic cough can be the sole manifestation of asthma.
  • Most patients with asthma should be able to participate in all activities and function normally with proper management.
  • Asthma medications include both controller medications and rescue medications.
  • Allergists help identify triggers, perform pulmonary function and skin testing, customize treatment plan (medications and asthma action plan development) and monitor progress.
