Asthma is a chronic disease and inflammation of the lungs without bacteria, where you repeatedly experience shortness of breath and difficulty breathing in the form of cough, chest tightness or wheezing. Frequent causes are allergy to pollen from trees or grass, food, pet hair and dust mites. If there is a tendency for asthma, it is also possible asthma attacks in connection with infections of the respiratory tract. When an asthma attack swells the mucous membranes in the lungs up and airways to contract, making breathing becomes difficult, and it becomes difficult to exhale. A "smoker's lung" (COPD) reacts lungs typical asthmatic with cough without the case of hypersensitivity, but due to the direct adverse effects on the lungs. Asthma can affect all age groups, but half of the cases seen in children under ten years. In children and teenagers asthma occurs slightly more often in boys and in girls a little later in puberty.
