It is observed that the exposure to environmental factors such as indoors and outdoors air pollution, cigarette smoke, and allergens are highly related to asthma attacks. It is also re-ported that limited exposure to asthma riggers, cure due to medicine, the attacks of asthma can be minimized. In this paper, we formulate the dynamics of asthma with smoking and environmental factors classes in the fractional Caputo-Fabrizio (CF) framework to visualize its dynamical behaviour. We delineate the important properties of the CF derivative for the analysis of our model. The model is then analyzed for the basic properties and the uniqueness and existence of the hypothesized asthma system are investigated via the theory of fixed point. Furthermore, a novel numerical scheme is presented for the solution of our fractional system to illustrate the time series of asthma model. The dynamical behaviour of our asthma model is then highlighted numerically to show the impact of fractional-order ϑ on the system and to visualize the role of input factors on the dynamics of asthma disease.
