Asthma is a long-term lung condition that results from persistent inflammation of the airways. Both adults and children with asthma can have symptoms including shortness of breath, chest tightness or heaviness, wheezing, cough, and difficulty breathing induced by physical activity or allergen exposure. Asthma severity can range from mild disease where patients experience symptoms intermittently, to severe disease where patients have daily limiting symptoms.
