Asthma

Asthma is a lung condition caused by the swelling of the lining of the airways in your lungs. When your airways are exposed to irritants or allergens, they tighten. It is harder to breathe. Asthma should be taken seriously. The good news is that asthma can be controlled, if treated regularly. Most asthma medicines are effective and easy to take.

With treatment, most people with asthma can lead normal, healthy lives.

You can be free of signs of illness most of the time with your doctor's help. Take care of your asthma even when your breathing feels normal. Here are some easy steps to help:

  • Know your triggers. Take steps to reduce or remove them from your daily life. Some triggers may include: exercise, allergies, tobacco smoke, perfume, cold air, pollution and medicines.
  • Know how to use your inhaler and control medicines the right way.
  • Keep calm during an asthma attack. Breathe slowly. Sit up. Use your rescue inhalers as ordered. Know how to get emergency help if you need it.
  • Make a written asthma action plan with your doctor.

Work with your doctor and commit to taking these smart steps each day.
