Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Asthma causes a narrowing of the breathing airways, which interferes with the normal movement of air in and out of the lungs. Asthma involves only the bronchial tubes and does not affect the air sacs or the lung tissue

Asthma is a complicated disease, and doctors don't completely understand its causes. But it has two main components: inflammation and muscle constriction. Asthma affects the airways, the bronchial tubes that carry air into the lungs.
