Asthma Home > Exersise-Induced Asthma

Were you looking for information about Exercise-Induced Asthma? Exersise-induced asthma is a common misspelling of exercise-induced asthma.
 
People with exercise-induced asthma have airways that are particularly sensitive to physical activity. Soon after the beginning of exercise, common asthma symptoms may occur, such as difficulty breathing, wheezing, and coughing. These last through the duration of physical activity, but usually disappear within an hour after exercise. Albuterol, an inhaled prescription drug, can be used to prevent and treat an acute attack of exercise-induced asthma.
 
(Click Exercise-Induced Asthma for more information on this condition. This article provides details on what symptoms may occur, how to prevent these symptoms, and what to do during an acute exercise-induced asthma attack.)
