In brief: Respiratory
Asthma is a disease of the breathing tubes characterized by recurrent episodes of shortness of breath, cough, wheezing.
It used to be thought that adult asthma had less of an allergic etiology but it is now known that both allergy related asthma and non- allergy related asthma can occur at any age. There are various treatments which may include inhalers but no known cure.
