People with asthma may have triggers that cause their condition to flare. Common triggers include dust mites, air quality, tobacco smoke, mold spores, pet dander, and strong smells.
Asthma is a condition that causes a person’s airways to become swollen. This leads to the airways narrowing, making it difficult to breathe. Asthma can cause shortness of breath, chest tightness, wheezing, and coughing that tends to worsen during the night or early morning.
