May is National Asthma Month
Asthma is a condition that affects the tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs. When the breathing tubes are inflamed, the air passages become narrow. This makes it difficult to get air in and out of the lungs.
An asthma attack is usually set off by a trigger like allergens, exercise or weather. Learn how to identify these triggers early to prevent an attack. If you are a smoker, learn how to quit so you can keep your lungs clear.
