What Are the Different Types of Asthma?

– So asthma comes in lots of flavors. The most common form of asthma
probably is allergic asthma. You have allergies to
something in your environment, dust, molds, pollen, and
you get asthma as a result. Sometimes you can get asthma after you’ve had a respiratory infection so there are certain bacterial
and viral infections. Once you’ve had them, your airways become a
little bit more inflamed and you can asthma for
a few months sometimes. Sometimes it can be the trigger for you to develop asthma lifelong. Sometimes you get asthma
because of smoking. So smoking can actually
produce asthma in some people. The other one that’s fairly common especially among teenagers
is exercise induced asthma. So for whatever reason, some
people when they exercise, they develop asthma. Those are probably the most
common causes of asthma. Occasionally you also
see people who get asthma from heartburn, acid reflux. When acid comes up your esophagus, that can trigger asthma in some people. So those are probably
the most common causes. There are other causes of asthma, but they’re much less concern.
