Causes of asthma

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airway that causes symptoms such as wheezing, shortness of breath, cough and tightness in the chest. During an asthma attack, the muscles around the airways tighten and constrict (bronchospasm), whilst the lining of the air passages swell and thicken due to increased mucus secretion. These two factors cause the airways to narrow, thus reducing the flow of air in and out of the lungs. The severity and frequency of such attacks differ from individual to individual.

Causes of asthma

Last year had been a stressful year for everyone in my family. One day, out of nowhere, my daughter started to complain about her breathing. At first, I thought it was due to a cold and therefore tried to treat it with some cough syrup. It got better for a little while but then she started to complain about how she would find it difficult to breathe more frequently. Over time, she even started getting these awful coughing fits that would not stop. However, as there were sizeable periods of rest between each fit, her father and I did not think much of it.

Causes of asthma

When my daughter was 5 years old, she started having issues with her breathing. She used to have these terrible sneezing and coughing fits. When she first got them, I assumed that it was a one-time thing and therefore tried to treat it with cough syrup. However, no matter how many doses I gave her, the coughing and sneezing would not stop completely. I finally realized that something was wrong and took her to the paediatrician. Her doctor conducted a thorough check-up and then suggested that I should let him run some more tests to see if she had asthma.

Can Kids Outgrow Asthma

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease in which the airways become sensitive to allergens or irritants. When the airways are exposed to such substances, the lining of the air passages become swollen and inflamed. In addition, the muscles around the airways tighten and there is an increase in mucus production in the lining. These factors narrow the passage of air in and out of the lungs and cause an obstruction in breathing.

What Is Bronchial Asthma?

Bronchial Asthma is an inflammatory lung disease in which an obstructive disturbance of ventilation occurs in the respiratory passage. Any external stimuli like exposure to perfume, moist air, exertion, warm air, cold air, pollen, dander, animal fur, can be triggers for asthma. In certain cases, even mental or emotional stress can be a trigger for a bronchial asthma attack. The attacks in this condition usually occur in the morning, along with a feeling of anxiety, making it difficult for asthmatics to breathe.
