    Asthma is a condition marked by airway hypersensitivity. This means that the airways react to certain stimuli or allergens and become swollen, secrete excessive mucus and constrict. This reduces airflow. It can be broadly divided into allergic (extrinsic) and non-allergic (intrinsic) asthma. The characteristic symptoms include wheezing and shortness of breath.

    Your question is very generalized and we respond to readers based on their personal health problems. If you need general medical information then there is sufficient resources on the internet. Information specific to your case of asthma is best discussed with your doctor. Long term management of airway disease involves multiple factors and it is not just about treatment with medication for the symptoms, but prophylactic treatment, lifestyle modification and so on. The doctor overlooking your case will be in a better position to advise you further.
