Getting the Jump on Childhood Asthma
- Viral infections such as the common cold
- Changes in temperature or humidity
- Stress and emotions
- Cigarette smoke
Since everybody has different asthma triggers, children need individualized asthma treatment plans. It is important for parents to know what their child's triggers are, how to avoid them and to have an asthma action plan. A family doctor can help prepare a plan so parents and their children will be ready if an attack cannot be prevented.
If you have any questions about Childhood Asthma, contact your pediatrician or pediatric allergist.
