    Uncovering Asthma Misconceptions


    - Asthma can occur at any age (in children, adolescents, adults and elderly)
    - Asthma is not infectious. However, viral respiratory infections (such as common cold and the flu) can cause asthma attacks, or in children, asthma is frequently associated with allergy, but asthma which starts adulthood is less often allergic.
    - When asthma is well controlled, asthma subjects are able to exercise and even perform top sport.
    - Asthma is most often controllable with low dose inhaled steroids
