Asthma is a disease that affects the tubes that bring air to and from your lungs. When a person has asthma these tubes get swollen and sore. These air tubes can have a bad reaction to smoke, dust, allergies or certain products. When your air tubes have a bad reaction they get smaller, which means less air gets into your lungs. When your asthma symptoms are worse than usual it is called an asthma attack. Click on the links below to learn more about symptoms of asthma and tips on controlling your asthma.
