Asthma irritants are airborne substances that act as an asthma trigger when inhaled. They differ from allergens in that they do not generate an immune response. Instead, they irritate already inflamed airways and trigger asthma symptoms, including wheezing, shortness of breath, chest tightness, and chronic cough. By identifying asthma irritants in your home, at work, and elsewhere in your environment, you can find ways to avoid them and reduce your risk of an attack.
