He said although there was no full cure available for the condition, but management methods can help a person with asthma lead a full and active life. It advises taking a puff of an inhaler every minute and... It is caused by reversible airflow obstruction and easily triggered bronchospasms. Symptoms include episodes of wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. Some people may experience these symptoms every day, while others have symptoms only a few days of the year. Depending on the person, they may become worse at night or with exercise.

The good news is that we can raise awareness about asthma and how it can be controlled. There have also been deeper investigations into the correlation between urbanization and the development of asthma in children. In this month, the "National Asthma Education and Prevention Program (NAEPP)" is organised to encourage the people to take care of their lung condition.

Society is now calling on those suffering with asthma to get an Asthma Action Plan.

Treatment usually depends on age, asthma severity, and individual response to a given treatment option.

If any of this symptoms already exist and these are exacerbated by an external infection (viral) and if these symptoms don't go away even after the infection has passed, then it could be a sign that the child has developed asthma.A common problem faced by doctors today is that of self-treatment by patients.

Expressing his concern, Dr. Himanshu Garg, Head Department of Respiratory and Sleep Medicine, W Pratiksha Hospital said, "Cases of Asthma and other respiratory allergies are on the rise". Often pharmacists advise patients on opting for different kinds of treatments to manage asthma however this is counterproductive.
