Asthma is a chronic medical condition that people of all ages can develop. If you have asthma, the air passages in your lungs may become inflamed and create excess mucus, resulting in the narrowing of your airways, which can cause fits of coughing and shortness of breath.
No one knows for sure what causes asthma. However, it is clear that there are many potential triggers, including dust mites, pet fur and dander, cigarette smoke, cold weather, and more. At Texas ENT Specialists, our asthma doctors in Katy can work with you to reduce your symptoms and lower your chances of experiencing an asthma attack.
