Asthma is a medical condition in which airways narrow and swell therefore producing extra mucus that makes breathing extremely difficult while triggering coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath. Asthma treatment involves long term and short-term medical prescriptions. Long term medical control involves the use of medications such as inhaled corticosteroids as the most imperative medication used in keeping asthma under check while quick inhalers contain a fast-acting medication such as albuterol.
