Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases of childhood. It is a chronic lung disease characterized by a decreased ability to breathe easily and mainly arises from allergies. Asthma is a condition where the airways become irritated and inflamed. As a result, the airways become narrower and produce extra mucus. Asthma can be either acute or chronic. Children with asthma typically cough with sputum and some time fever, wheeze, and experience chest tightness and shortness of breath. Common Causes of Asthma are Respiratory infections, Allergy to pollen, Air pollution, Non-specific hyperirritability, Dust mites, Sulfites in food and certain medications. Triggering Factors of Asthma are or stimuli like those listed below:
