Asthma is the body's reaction to external stimuli and the bronchial mucosa is overly sensitive. An asthma attack can last for hours and most often occurs in the morning, and is manifested through inability to breathe, "whining" in the lungs, blue lips, cold extremities, excessive sweating and frequent dry cough accompanied by a feeling of fear.

First of all, it is necessary to determine the real cause of asthma because only then can it be effectively treated. Therefore, it is necessary to immediately seek a doctor who will prescribe you a bronchial inhaler, which the patient must always have by his side.

There are four types of asthma: allergic asthma, nervous asthma, bronchial asthma, and cardiac asthma. Smokers are especially at risk, as well as people who are allergic or have a family member with asthma or have frequent bronchitis.

Allergic asthma is the most common and is caused by hypersensitivity to certain substances: dust, pollen, cat hair, mold fungi, horse sweat, paints, flour, drugs, chemicals, etc.
Nervous asthma is a typical consequence of our modern lifestyle full of hectic and stress.
Bronchial asthma is manifested through excessive secretion of the mucous membrane that narrows the bronchi and thus prevents air from reaching the lungs.
Cardiac asthma causes weakening and dysfunction of the heart due to attacks due to inability to breathe.
