    good morning, sorry about that. how old is your sister? asthma is both involves the respiratory system. asthma is an atomic disease ie body's reaction to foreign materials causing inflammation of the airways while bronchitis is inflammation of the bronchi airway majorly due to infection. she has to go to hospital for chest X-ray, proper evaluation and appropriate management. thanks.
