Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
Asthma or bronchial asthma is a hypersensitive (too sensitive) condition in the airways where inflammation and constriction can occur which can cause difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, and sometimes accompanied by coughing. The cause of asthma is allergic processes, both to certain substances or small particles (dust, animal dander, pollen, etc.), weather (cold, heat), certain foods (nuts, eggs, shrimp, etc.), or psychological factors (stress, excessive anxiety, etc.).
In addition, although asthma causes shortness of symptoms, it is important to remember that not all symptoms of shortness of breath or difficulty breathing must be bronchial asthma. There are other conditions or diseases, such as rhinosinusitis, tuberculosis, heart disease, anaphylactic reactions, kidney disease, psychological factors, etc. Therefore, if you have never seen a doctor before, I suggest to consult directly, so that your disease can be ascertained, and appropriate treatment can be given.
Especially for bronchial asthma, the treatment used can be in the form of drugs to relax the muscles of the airways, anti-inflammatory drugs, sputum thinners, etc. However, the use of these drugs must be adjusted to the severity of the disease, the patient's suitability with the drug, body weight, etc. In addition, if used not with the correct dosage and usage rules, it can cause dangerous side effects. Therefore, it is not recommended to use these drugs without advice or recommendations from general practitioners or internal medicine specialists.
It is true that most bronchial asthma is hereditary or hereditary. However, just like other hereditary diseases, the possibility of your offspring to experience the same condition as you is still a probability depending on the genetic makeup of your partner. If you have asthma, it does not mean your child will get asthma, and vice versa.
Some things you can do:
Identification of triggers (allergens). Because it often recurs, usually patients can recognize what factors can cause shortness of symptoms. This is important for the process of treating asthma
Avoid triggers, for example by using a mask (in dust allergies), or using a jacket (in cold allergies), avoiding certain foods, etc.
Routinely see a doctor. Asthma is a long-term disease that requires regular and routine treatment. However, if you can avoid triggers and get treatment regularly, it can generally be controlled.
If you feel very tight and have difficulty breathing, check with the ER (Emergency Room) at the nearest health facility.
Thus, hopefully can help.
