Asthma is a chronic lung disease that inflames and narrows the airways. It is a predisposition to chronic inflammation of the lungs in which the airways are reversibly narrowed. Asthma results in an overreaction of the body’s immune system which is usually caused by exposure to an allergen (that is a substance that is perceived as foreign to the body). An asthmatic attack results in breathlessness and difficulty in breathing which results in wheezing sound – a coarse whistling sound. Contrary to popular opinion, asthma is not a childhood disease. It can occur at any age. It can be triggered by a number of factors such as: • Cockroach allergens • Pollens/ Mould • Pet dander • Chemicals • Drugs (NSAIDs, antibiotics) • Dust mites/ Feathers • Environmental pollutants/fumes • Food additives (e.g., MSGs) • Anxiety • Extremes of dryness or humidity • Stress • Etc.
