Asthma Triggers

Those who live with asthma have some degree of inflammation in their airways all the time, although the symptoms aren’t always in flare. When the inflammation around the airway muscles leads to constriction, or inflammation within the airways produces lots of mucus, your relatively controllable condition can take a turn for the worse.
