Understanding and Managing Asthma in Children

Asthma is a chronic condition that can affect how your child is able to breathe. It affects how their lungs function and can impact several areas of your child’s life. It’s important that you’re able to talk to your pediatrician about how to manage your child’s symptoms and get them the treatment that they need. Dr. Sandra Arce-Garzon and Dr. Sergio Casaclang at Best Care Family Health Center in Milwaukee, WI, can explain childhood asthma and how to manage your child’s condition.

Dealing With Childhood Asthma

When your child is dealing with asthma, they may have difficulty breathing both during the day and night. You might find that it’s difficult for your child to sleep because they’re constantly coughing at night. They may also complain about tightness in the chest and shortness of breath. These are all common signs of asthma and should be treated immediately.

If our pediatrician in Milwaukee, WI, determines that your child has asthma, it’s important to start managing their condition as soon as possible. You should be sure to talk to your pediatrician about what treatments might be needed and what you should do if your child is having an asthma attack.

Often, if your child is having an asthma attack, they may require a rescue inhaler to help them breathe easier again. Other common medications could include corticosteroids to help open up your child’s airways more easily. If your child’s asthma is caused by allergies, they may need to undergo allergy treatment in order to deal with any asthma symptoms.
