An asthma attack is triggered by something that irritates the airways. Each child has a different “trigger”. It is important to learn what triggers your child’s asthma. Avoiding these triggers may help prevent an asthma attack. Common triggers include: smoke, upper respiratory infections, exercise, strong odors, allergens (dust, pollen), and weather changes.
Preventative care is the best when treating children with asthma. If your child has wheezing in the spring and fall – schedule a visit BEFORE the season arrives.There is no cure for asthma. But, asthma can be treated.
