Frequently Asked Question on asthma
Who gets asthma?

Asthma tends to run in families, which means that you are more likely to develop asthma if someone in your family already has it. Children with eczema or food allergy are more likely than other children to develop asthma.

Can infections trigger asthma?

Yes, viral respiratory infections, such as colds or flu, can trigger asthma symptoms, particularly in children. Try to avoid contact with people if you know they have a respiratory infection.

Is asthma contagious?

No. Asthma cannot be spread to other people. On the other hand, a person with asthma can catch bronchitis just as easily as anyone else. And bronchitis can be contagious, in the same way as an ordinary cold.

Can I have pets even though I have asthma?

If you have asthma and are allergic, you should not buy a pet. If you have asthma but no signs of allergy, and do not get any obvious symptoms from your pet, it is probably all right to keep it, but bear in mind that it will contribute to the amount of dust in the house.
