    It isn’t clear why some people get asthma and others don’t, but it’s probably due to a combination of environmental and genetic factors. Exposure to various irritants and substances that trigger allergies can trigger signs and symptoms of asthma. Asthma triggers are different from person to person and can include airborne substances, such as pollen, dust mites, mold spores, pet dander or particles of cockroach waste, respiratory infections, stress and sometimes physical activities.
