Asthma is a serious lung disease. Asthma makes the sides of the airways in your lungs inflamed or swollen all the time. Your airways react to things like smoke, dust, pollen or other things. Your airways narrow or become smaller and you get common symptoms like coughing, wheezing, chest tightness or shortness of breath.
