Asthma may be defined as an allergic condition of the respiratory system which is chiefly characterized by recurrent attacks of continuous coughing. On the other hand, bronchitis can be referred to as a condition under which there is an inflammation of the trachea and bronchi of the lungs. This in turn results in the accumulation of phlegm or sputum thereby causing difficulty in breathing.
