Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

Asthma is due to a hypersensitiveness of the airway tract to variety of stimuli. People with asthma experience symptoms when the airways tighten, inflame, or fill with mucus. Common asthma symptoms include:

1. Coughing, especially at night ;
2. Wheezing ;
3. Shortness of breath ;
4. Chest tightness, pain, or pressure

Asthma can be controlled by taking the regular medications including inhalers. Typically bronchodilators are prescribed for regular use and for acute episodes. When exacerbation occurs, a steroid inhaler can be prescribed by your doctor which will help stabilize the airways and prevent further worsening or future attacks. In addition medications can be prescribed to prevent the hypersensitiveness of the airway.

Over time, as the airway matures, patients usually grow out and episodes become less frequent.

Your brother will benefit by consulting a doctor , who can examine him and then do some basic tests to diagnose asthma and start the necessary treatment.

I hope this helps.



I hope this helps.
