Asthma

Asthma is the condition of lungs in which a person suffers from shortness of breath and coughs. It arises due to inflammation or narrowing of bronchial tubes (airway), which further produces
excessive mucus. In some cases, it is also seen that asthma prevents oxygen from entering the lungs, hence, enhances the complications. Asthma is a time-dependent disease; hence it is important to keep its track with doctors.
