Asthma causes the airways to become inflamed and easily irritated so that
they react strongly to things to which you are allergic. When your airways
react, they become narrower. Less air reaches your lungs, and breathing
becomes difficult. Sometimes this reaction is life-threatening. Asthma
can't be cured, but for most people, the symptoms can be controlled
and they can live an active life. Good communication with your health
care team becomes critical because managing and treating asthma is a life-long
effort and can be a complex, ongoing challenge.
