WHAT IS ASTHMA

Asthma is a chronic respiratory condition that affects the airways in the lungs. It is characterized by inflammation and narrowing of the airways, which can lead to various symptoms and breathing difficulties.

TRIGGERS

Asthma triggers are substances or situations that can worsen asthma symptoms or cause asthma attacks. These triggers can vary from person to person, but some common triggers of asthma include:

  1. Allergens:
    • Pollen: Pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds can trigger asthma symptoms, particularly in people with allergic asthma.
    • Dust Mites: Tiny dust mites in household dust can be a significant trigger for some individuals.
    • Pet Dander: Allergens from pet hair, fur, and skin flakes can exacerbate asthma symptoms.
    • Mold: Mold spores in damp and humid environments can trigger asthma, especially in individuals with mold allergies.
Respiratory Infections:

  • Common Cold and Influenza: Viral respiratory infections can lead to asthma exacerbations.
  • Sinusitis and Bronchitis: Infections of the upper respiratory tract can sometimes worsen asthma symptoms.
Irritants:

  • Tobacco Smoke: Exposure to secondhand smoke or active smoking can irritate the airways and worsen asthma.
  • Air Pollution: Outdoor air pollution, such as smog and fine particulate matter, can trigger asthma symptoms.
  • Strong Odors and Chemical Fumes: Perfumes, cleaning products, and industrial chemicals can irritate the airways.
