Asthma is a common, chronic (persisting for a long time) condition affecting the respiratory system in which the airways (breathing tubes) overreact to environmental or direct triggers which leads to chronic airway irritation and inflammation. Asthma can start at any age more commonly in childhood or early adulthood but even may appear for the first time in old age. The chronic irritation leads the linings of the breathing tubes to swell up and produce more secretions giving rise to symptoms such as a cough with or without sputum and wheezing (the whistling sound from the chest during breathing).
