Respiratory Adult-Onset Asthma

When asthma symptoms appear in adults 20 years of age or older, it is referred to as adult-onset asthma. Exposure to allergens, infection, or irritants such as cigarette smoke, chemicals, mold, or other substances commonly found in the person’s environment may trigger the first asthma symptoms in an adult.

Common reactions include:

  • gastrointestinal problems
  • headaches
  • coughing
  • rashes
  • muscle aches
  • fevers
