No one knows the cause of asthma, one theory is that it is a combination of genetic and environmental factors.


- Coughing

- Wheezing

- Shortage of breath

- Chest pressure

- Rapid breathing


- Bronchodilators (quick relief inhalers)

- Corticosteroids (long term meds)

- Inhalers, most of them have albuterol sulfate.

- Allergy meds


There is no way yet to prevent asthma. We don't even know what causes it, so until that is figured out, there is no way to prevent it.
