What is Asthma?

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition that affects the airways. It usually starts during childhood but can affect people of any age. It is not a curable condition, but with treatment, asthma can be kept under control and the impact on your life can be minimised.

The key symptoms of asthma are:
• Wheezing or a whistling sound when breathing
• A feeling of breathlessness
• Tightness in the chest
• Repeated coughing
When these symptoms suddenly and temporarily worsen, this is called an asthma attack. If left without treatment, an asthma attack can be dangerous. If someone is struggling to breathe for an extended period of time, consider calling 111 or 999.

Asthma is a treatable condition. The main treatments are reliever and preventer inhalers. A reliever inhaler works rapidly for a shorter amount of time to relieve the symptoms of asthma. A preventer inhaler works for a longer period of time. It is not suitable for the immediate relief of symptoms.

All treatments recommended and provided by Pillhub have been approved by the MHRA (Medicine and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency) meaning that they are safe and effective.
