The larger airways (bronchi) branches into smaller airways (bronchioles) that are obstructed due to tightening of muscles, swelling, or irritation in the airways and accumulation of mucous resulting in asthma. Most common symptoms associated with asthma are shortness of breath, chest tightness, coughing, and wheezing.

  • hyperirritability
  • Sulfites in food and other drugs.
  • Certain medications
