(En español: Ataque
Say: az-muh flare-up
A person who has asthma
may go through times when he or she breathes just fine or has only a little trouble.
But when a person has a lot of trouble with wheezing, coughing, or shortness of breath,
it's called an asthma flare-up, or attack. Stuff like allergies, a cold, cigarette
smoke, exercise, or even cold air can trigger an asthma flare-up.
