For over a decade now, we have observed an increase of patients affected by asthma. Asthma has become a persistent social reality, drawing extreme public concern, however, we do not have any dedicated sociological analysis of the topic at hand. Keeping the same in mind, this research attempts to deep dive into the issue by analysing its impact from the perspectives other than medical: that is social and economical. The research also uncovers different notions and myths attached to asthma in our society.
