This is asthma that does not drastically affect the quality of one's life. The symptoms are not severe. Mild asthma attacks are also not so intense and the duration between the attacks is quite long. People with this type of asthma can go on with their lives without a lot of concern about their condition. Due care should also be taken as the condition can turn to be chronic if they do not treat it.

The symptoms of mild asthma are the same as those of chronic asthma. The only difference is the intensity and severity.  These symptoms include coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and tightness in the chest cavity. The asthma symptoms usually last for a minute or two. The maximum time given is five minutes. Sometimes medication is given to relieve the symptoms.

The most common causes of asthma are allergies. These allergies differ in different people. The most common ones are to animals, pollen, house dust mites, weather, air pollutants, fungi and mold. One should know what they are allergic to and try to avoid it. This way, you reduce chances of having an attack.

A doctor's advice on the condition is very important as you do not want the condition to turn from mild asthma to chronic, always keep it in check. Regular visits to the doctor will determine the condition and how you are progressing. The doctor will also determine whether to put you on medication or not.  You should not ignore the symptoms of mild asthma as they can develop into chronic asthma.
