Asthma is a medical condition that affects the airways (the breathing tubes that carry air into our lungs). From time to time, people with asthma find it harder to breathe in and out, because the airways in their lungs become narrower – like trying to breathe through a thin straw.

At other times their breathing is normal.

There is no cure for asthma, but it can usually be well controlled. Most people with asthma can stay active and have a healthy life.

While asthma symptoms vary from person to person, the most common signs of mild asthma are:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Wheezing
  • Coughing
  • Tightness in chest
  • A lack of energy
