Bronchial asthma is a chronic inflammatory ailment that affects a person’s airways and is characterized by an attack-like appearance. In some hospitals you may be prescribed this medicine:

As a result of prolonged inflammatory process in the respiratory system, the organs function intensely. In contact with allergens, they become hyperactive. Immediately the bronchial obstruction intensifies, due to which the air partially ceases to penetrate into the body, and suffocation occurs. If the process is not stopped at this stage, the bronchi become swollen, their obstruction by the glands of the respiratory system is observed. The muscular fibers of the bronchi are replaced by connective ones, resulting in irreversible processes in the structure of the organ.
