This disease cannot be cured, but it can be treated in order to reduce symptoms. Sometimes the individual believes that he has been cured because he has not had the appearance of symptoms for a long time and did not have an asthma attack, however it must be emphasized and understood that it is not a curable disease and that it requires that the affected person be attentive and take the treatment given by the doctor to the letter.

When the person runs out of air or feels a tightness in the chest, they can resort to so-called bronchodilators, which are usually delivered as a spray.

This disease can manifest itself in adults as well as in children, the latter group being the most common. It is usually triggered in childhood and this is due to an allergic component. However, this disease can occur in a child because his mother has a history of smoking or asthma.

As can be seen, it is a disease without major complications, but that requires avoiding those factors that favor the appearance of symptoms such as pollen, animals, fungi, among others.

Our recommendation is that you go to a clinic in case you have any questions about this disease.
