Managing Your Child’s Asthma
Asthma is a chronic disease that affects the airways and causes the inner lining of the airways to become inflamed and causes the muscles to tighten, making it hard to breathe comfortably. Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases that can affect someone in childhood. Luckily, there are ways to manage and treat your child’s asthma. Your child’s pediatrician at Pediatrics of Central Florida in Kissimmee, Orlando, and St. Cloud, FL, can go over ways that you can help manage your child’s asthma.
You can help make sure that your child can avoid asthma triggers, such as allergens, and be sure that your child is provided their asthma medication. It’s important to monitor how often your child is having asthma attacks and to see their pediatrician if it occurs more than twice a week.
Some other common triggers to be aware of include:
- Dust and pet hair
- Viral or bacterial infections
- Environmental allergens, like pollution or smoke
- Emotional stress
