About asthma According to the Global Initiative for Asthma, asthma is a chronic disease, which is characterized by wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and cough over a period of time. The symptoms worsen due to the increased secretion of mucus, bronchoconstriction, and thickening of the walls of the airways, resulting in difficulty in expiration. According to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, asthma is classified into four types: exercise-induced, allergic, occupational, and childhood. Also, asthma can be classified into two categories: allergic and non-allergic, as per the classification of Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. Asthma can be managed by preventive medications, which should be administered to the patient regularly to improve his quality of life by controlling the exacerbations.
