Asthma is a condition in which your airways narrow, swell and may produce extra mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath.
For some people, asthma is a minor nuisance. For others, it can interfere with daily activities and may lead to a life-threatening asthma attack.
Long-term asthma control medications, generally taken daily, are the cornerstone of treatment. These medications keep asthma under control on a day-to-day basis and make it less likely you'll have an asthma attack.
