Asthma symptoms most commonly begin in childhood though it can begin at any age due to factors such as triggers such as a respiratory infection, irritants such as mould and smoke or allergies though the exact reason is not known.
With around 1 in 12 adults being treated for this long term respiratory condition, if someone begins suffering from breathing issues at any age it is vital to get checked by the doctor as quickly as possible. Without the correct medications, the lungs struggle to work and eventually the breathing difficulties and wheezing can become life threatening.
One aspect of an asthma management programme is the use of a daily preventer inhaler such as Flixotide which comes in the form of an Evohaler or Accuhaler. When used every day as prescribed this type of steroid medication, designed to treat mucus build up and inflammation in the lungs and airways, will help to prevent asthmatic symptoms and attacks in the long run.
