What is Asthma?It is a chronic lung condition affecting tubes called airways. These tubes carry air in and out of the lungs. In a child with asthma, airways react to certain triggers, causing:
- The airways to swell
- Thick, sticky mucus to fill the airways
- The muscles that wrap around the airways to squeeze tight
What are the symptoms of asthma?
