Asthma Home > Exersize-Induced Asthma

Were you looking for information about Exercise-Induced Asthma? Exersize-induced asthma is a common misspelling of exercise-induced asthma.
Exercise-induced asthma, as the name implies, is triggered by physical activity. People with this condition generally experience coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and other asthma symptoms within the first hour of beginning exercise. These symptoms last throughout the duration of physical activity. Albuterol, an inhaled prescription medication, can be used prior to physical activity to prevent symptoms of exercise-induced asthma.
