Asthma in Adults and Children (symptoms, causes, treatment, medication) (Babies)

Asthma is a chronic lung disease that increasingly affects people all over the world, especially children, and is characterized by excessive production of mucus in the lungs, coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, etc. In children, it can completely disappear by the age of eighteen, but if it does not, it might remain a permanent condition. Nobody can actually cure asthma, but with suitable treatment, it can be manageable and its symptoms significantly reduced. It is very important to get regular checkups with the doctor, but home remedies can additionally help as well.
