What is Asthma?
Asthma is a condition in which the airways of the lungs become either narrowed or completely blocked, impeding normal breathing. However, in asthma, this obstruction of the lungs is reversible, either spontaneously or with medication. Although cough and asthma are two different things, yet people with asthma usually have difficulty in breathing and often cough a lot. In fact, a persistent cough could be a sign of asthma. It is characterized by constriction and inflammation of the air passages.
