Allergy Treatment - We’ve got your back

Asthma is a condition where your airways start to narrow and produce extra mucus making it difficult to breathe at times. Asthma can also cause coughing, shortness of breath, a wheezing sound, and in severe cases be life threatening.

In some cases Asthma is a miner yet annoying situation however in other cases it can be severe and cause a life threatening asthma attack.

Asthma is not a curable condition. Asthma can only be monitored and checked by your doctor on a regular basis. Asthma is a condition that is constantly changing and evolving so it is important to discuss your symptoms on a regular basis with your doctor.

Symptoms 

  • Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
  • Pain or tightening of your chest
  • Difficulty sleeping due to difficulty breathing
  • A wheezing sound when exhaling (often observed in children)
  • Severe coughing or wheezing that worsens when sick or treating a cold or flu.

What to look for to ensure your Asthma symptoms are not worsening:

  • Increasing symptoms
  • Increasing difficulty breathing
  • Use of an inhaler more often
