World Asthma Day 2020

Asthma is one of the most common lifelong chronic diseases. May 5th is the World Asthma Day, dedicated to asthma control and education to increase awareness about asthma and improve the lives of all people with asthma.

What is Asthma?

Asthma is a serious global health problem affecting all age groups. Its prevalence is increasing in many countries, especially among children. Asthma is a disease that affects your lungs. If you have asthma, you have it all the time, but you will have asthma attacks only when something bothers your lungs.

Although some countries have seen a decline in hospitalizations and deaths from asthma, asthma still imposes an unacceptable burden on health care systems, and on society through loss of productivity in the workplace and, especially for pediatric asthma, disruption to the family.

What Causes an Asthma Attack?

An asthma attack can happen when you are exposed to “asthma triggers.” Your asthma triggers can be very different from someone else’s asthma triggers. Know your triggers and learn how to avoid them. Some of the most common triggers are:

  • tobacco smoke
  • dust mites
  • outdoor air pollution
  • cockroach allergen
  • pets
  • mold
  • smoke from burning wood or grass
  • infections like flu

How can you treat Asthma?

Take your medicine exactly as your doctor tells you and stay away from things that can trigger an attack to control your asthma.
