Asthma is a condition, affecting millions of kids and teens, where the airways in the lungs swell up and fill with mucus, making it difficult to breathe.

Many different things can trigger an asthma flare-up, also called an asthma attack. Some kids are bothered by animal dander, pollen from plants, or molds. Others may have reactions to dust, perfume, or cigarette smoke.
