What you need to know
about Childhood Asthma
Childhood asthma is the same lung illness that adults suffer, although children’s symptoms are often different. This is also known as paediatric asthma by doctors.
When your child has asthma, their lungs and airways can easily get inflamed from a cold or exposure to pollen. Your child’s symptoms may make it difficult for him or her to complete normal activities or sleep. An asthma episode may necessitate a trip to the hospital.
Although there is no cure for asthma in children, you can cooperate with their doctor to treat it and protect their developing lungs.
