    Asthma is an inherited exaggerated response to what we call respiratoty irritants/ allergens which manifest with difficulty breathing. Like I said irritants could be cloth materials, dust, perfumes, mosquito sprays and the likes. Management primarily is avoiding irritants and in case of acute attacks you can use systemic salbutamol, corticosteroids, but we advise the person to see a Dr who can them manage based on the clinical presentation at that time.
