Managing Your Asthma

Asthma is a chronic disease that makes it hard to breathe freely. Because it affects breathing and because it cannot be cured, asthma should be managed every day. You and your doctor (or your child's doctor) can work together to develop a plan to help avoid the problems caused by asthma.
