Asthma is a chronic lung disease where a person's airway is swollen and inflamed, causing the person to be sensitive to various triggers such as environmental allergies, the weather, dust, chemicals, animals, and even the common cold. When an asthmatic breathes in one of their triggers, it can cause their airway to constrict and make it difficult to breathe, which many refer to as having an "asthma attack." An estimated 25.9 million people in the United States are living with asthma, 7.1 million of which are children. It is one of the most common chronic disorders in children. While there is no cure for asthma, there are a variety of treatments depending on the severity of the disease and a person's triggers.
