All around the world on Tuesday 1st May people are holding events to mark World Asthma day.
Asthma is an allergic reaction that affects your lungs. It can affect breathing and make you cough and wheeze and get in the way of you doing things you want to do.
The good news is that you can get control of your asthma so that it doesn’t get in the way. You can take control by knowing what sets of your asthma, what medicine you need and when you need to take it.
