It’s usually the dust mites’ droppings that cause allergy problems. They are so tiny and light that they can easily float through the air, enter your nose, and cause symptoms.

When you breathe in cigarette smoke, the harmful chemicals in it—such as carbon monoxide—go right into your lungs.

Many doctors believe that it is most important to treat the main problem of asthma—inflammation of the airways. Anti-inflammatory drugs can do the job by reducing the swelling and twitchiness in the airways. These drugs are usually taken regularly, once or twice a day. Regular use of these drugs can help make the airways less sensitive and less likely to start a reaction. How do you know what type of asthma medication you need and how much? Well, that depends on how severe your symptoms are and how often they occur.

Com Coughing is very common in people with asthma. Asthma symptoms vary greatly from person to person. Whether the symptoms are mild or severe depends on how seriously the airways are inflamed. It is important to treat asthma attacks early. This helps prevent further inflammation that can make the symptoms worse.

Then, with fewer cilia, the airway lining cannot clear out the particles as effectively.
