What is Asthma?

Asthma is a common lung condition that causes difficulty in breathing occasionally. People of all ages can be affected by asthma. Although it often begins in childhood, it can also develop in adults for the first time. Currently, there’s no cure for the condition, however, simple treatments help keep the symptoms under control so that it doesn’t affect your life.
