What is Asthma?

Asthma is a condition that causes the airways to narrow, swell, and produce excess mucus. This can make breathing difficult and trigger coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath. Asthma can range from minor to severe, and can interfere with daily activities.

Common symptoms of asthma may include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness or pain
  • Wheezing
  • Coughing attacks

For some individuals, asthma symptoms can worsen in certain situations. Asthma is categorized based on the cause. These include:

Exercise-induced asthma occurs during physical activity and can often worsen with the air is dry and cold.

Occupational asthma is often triggered in a workplace in which irritants such as gas, dust, or chemical fumes are present.

Allergy-induced asthma is triggered by pollen, spores, mold, or pet dander.

These triggers can sometimes lead to an asthma attack, which is a sudden worsening of asthma symptoms. If you or a loved one experiences an asthma attack, seek medical help as soon as possible, as it could be serious.

Treatment for Asthma

There is no cure for asthma, but there are ways to control symptoms. Asthma medications can help to manage your symptoms, with most asthma patients able to live a normal and active life. The right medications for you are dependent on your age, symptoms, and asthma triggers. There are long-term asthma control medications that are taken daily, as well as quick-relief medications that are used as needed for short-term symptom relief and asthma attacks. Allergy medications can also help if your asthma is triggered by allergies. The treatment option that is right for you will be determined during an examination.

“I don’t usually like going to any urgent care because of my bad experience BUT I love this Location. The staffs and the doctor are very nice and very friendly. One of the female nurses name Carrie. She is my favorite because she was nice and gentle when she was care for me. She also did my first Covid on my first visit there months ago. Thank You!!”

“By far the best Urgent Care I’ve ever been too. First, the employees are amazing and full of positivity. They know what they are doing and get stuff done. You actually feel safe there. I’ve never felt safe in an urgent care before from bad experiences until I walked into this one. I’m beyond grateful. I have to mention how beautiful and CLEAN the building is. If you need an urgent care go to this one you will not be disappointed.”

“I rarely ever leave ratings of places, and don't think I've ever commented on one, if I have I don't remember doing so but this place is AMAZING!! I was in and out so fast. ALL of the staff was so nice and so efficient. The rooms are clean and the waiting room is so nice and clean and cute. They even have a coffee machine with options if hot chocolate, hot tea, coffee and even chicken broth which I thought was just so thoughtful!! I won't go anywhere else if I need an urgent care center!!”
