The muscles surrounding the airways also tend to tighten, which makes the already clogged airways even narrower. This can lead a person to cough, wheeze, and have trouble breathing. People with asthma may be sensitive to certain things, such as viruses, allergies, smoke, and even exercise. Doctors call asthma a chronic condition. This means that people who have asthma will always have the condition, although they may not always have symptoms.</p> AsmaEl asma es una afección crónica de los pulmones que provoca la inflamación de las vías aéreas (los conductos que transportan el aire hacia el interior y el exterior de los pulmones).https://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/es/teens/asthma-def-esp.html/2ecaa84f-316c-4ab7-b65d-4f68e5ec9f53kh:age-teenThirteenToNineteenkh:age-youngAdultEighteenPluskh:clinicalDesignation-allergykh:clinicalDesignation-pulmonologykh:genre-dictionarykh:primaryClinicalDesignation-pulmonologyWords to Know for Teens With Asthmahttps://kidshealth.org/ws/RadyChildrens/en/teens/asthma-center/words-to-know/af80913e-f47b-46fe-99dc-387482ea53e9
