Asthma affects around 1 in 20 adults and is caused by inflammation and over-sensitivity of the lungs, which can lead to sudden narrowing of the airways. Common symptoms include cough, wheeze, shortness of breath and chest tightness. It can be triggered by many things, including viruses, dust and pollen.
Asthma can start at any age, though it most commonly develops during childhood. It is generally diagnosed based on the symptoms, which tend to get better when inhalers are used. However, sometimes investigations may be needed to confirm the diagnosis.
For most people who have asthma, treatment involves taking a reliever inhaler when symptoms flare up. Many people also need to take a daily preventer inhaler, to reduce inflammation in the lungs and stop symptoms happening in the first place. And sometimes an oral medication ( Montelukast/ Singulair) may be used as a preventer.
