Asthma

Asthma makes your airways become swollen and inflamed. During an asthma attack, you typically wheeze, lose your breath, and your chest feels tight. The severity of the symptoms often varies by time of year.

Allergic rhinitis and asthma can be present in the same patient. One condition can significantly impact the course of the other.
