Asthma is a chronic, inflammatory lung disease characterized by recurrent breathing problems. An asthma attack is characterized by labored breathing, a tight feeling to the chest, coughing and/or wheezing. Some episodes are triggered by allergens such as dust or pollens, and some are caused by infection, exercise, cold air and other factors. Asthma can cause mild discomfort or can cause life-threatening attacks in which a person stops breathing altogether. If your asthma attack is no longer bearable, you should seek the help of an allergist. Here at Dr. David H. Dreyfus MD, PhD we can help with treatment and asthma testing.
