Causes of Asthma

Asthma attack is the name of that disease which can make the life of a person very vulnerable and difficult. Due to asthma attack that person will not be able to walk fast, run or climb stairs because it will cause air blockage in the airways and because of this air blockage lungs will not be able to get the required amount of air which will eventually result in asthma attack for that person. After knowing the symptoms of asthma, it is very important for every person to know the causes of asthma also so they can keep themselves away from those causes and can prevent themselves from asthma attack or disease.

When talking about the causes of asthma, one should always know that the airways of the lungs in that particular person who is suffering from asthma are very sensitive and weak; they get triggered and affected by many things and anything which comes in contact or connects with these triggers can cause the asthma symptoms. In order to avoid these asthma symptoms and asthma attack one should recognize their own triggers or trigger points and try to refrain, their own self from getting triggered. But to keep one’s own self healthy the only trigger which should not be avoided or refused is to do exercise. Following is the list of common causes or triggers of asthma attack:

  • The first in the list is different types of harmful and dangerous infections. These infections and harmful bacteria get into one’s body and start destroying human organs and health. Some common types of infections are flu, cold, different types of viruses, sinus infections etc.
  • Second reason which can cause asthma is exercise. Yes! Exercise is good for health and every person should exercise daily I order to be healthy and fit but an excessive exercise or workout may cause asthma to take place in one’s body. Due to excessive workout your lungs do not get the required amount of air and hence cannot provide your heart required amount of oxygen which can cause suffocation and difficulty in breathing and eventually it will become the cause of asthma attack.
  • Another reason for the cause of asthma is changing in weather conditions. There are many people who get ill just because of a slight weather change. It’s because these people cannot adjust their self, according to the surrounding very easily, they take time. And in that particular one can become the victim of asthma disease. Changes in weather may include cold air or breeze, humidity or humid air etc.
  • Adding to the list is smoke of tobacco. Tobacco smoke can cause harm to the active smokers but it can also harm passive smokers (people who only inhale the smoke of tobacco). People who are allergic to such smokes can start coughing right at the spot can have difficulty in breathing which can eventually be the cause of an asthma attack.

Other main causes of asthma attack include some medications and due to their side effects one can face asthma attack, very strongly laughing or crying can also be one of the causes of asthma attack and some types of irritants and allergens also.
