Dealing with asthma


Asthma is respiratory condition marked by spasms in the bronchi of the lungs. Bronchi is the part of the lungs that allow air to enter and leave the lungs. It usually results in breathing from allergic reactions or other forms of hypersensitivity.


Having an asthma attack is a scary thing to experience.


Having an asthma asthma makes my chest feel much tighter and I have a harder time breathing when everything is just normal,” said Christopher Del Cid.


Even people without asthma people can still feel the stress about dealing with it.


“The fact that I have kids with asthma makes me feel bad knowing that sometimes they struggle to breathe at certain times. By giving them the right medicine and keeping the house clean, I keep my kids from safe,” said Maria Oregon.


Because asthma is a condition in the bronchi of lungs, physical activity becomes a bit more challenging.


“When I go to the park, play outside, or do anything that involves moving around a lot, I get tired quickly and start having trouble breathing. Then I have to use my inhaler,” said Uzziel Mateo.


People can be diagnosed with asthma at any time in their life, including birth to being an old person.


“The first I found time I found out I had asthma I was annoyed, mainly because I had to go to the hospital, and also I was terrified because I could not breathe,” said Uzziel.


People with asthma should not live in a place with dust mites, rat poop, and cockroaches. Strong chemical odors can trigger an asthma attack if you are not careful. Sudden changes in the weather and temperatures can cause lots of coughing.


Mattress lining and pillow cases should be used to minimize dust and pollen, especially in the spring, to prevent asthma attacks.


Regular checkups with a doctor, getting exercise, and eating healthy can also help you keep asthma controlled. And make sure to have an inhaler with you at all time.



If you do not have an inhaler or a machine for an asthma attack, contact your doctor.
