Contrary to popular belief, asthma is not a benign disease. Almost 2,000 deaths are attributable to him every year. Thus, it is advisable to consult in case of crisis of course, but also in the event of one of the characteristic symptoms (frequent cough or bronchitis, shortness of breath, whistling in the chest, etc.). The risks of asthma are increased if you have these symptoms and your family has other asthmatics or allergy sufferers or if you have experienced bronchiolitis in your infancy. Only your doctor can make the diagnosis.
