Kids and allergies seem to go hand in hand. Children’s allergies are the most common chronic childhood diseases, affecting nearly 50 million American children.

Common childhood asthma symptoms include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Whistling or wheezing while exhaling
  • Constant intermittent coughing
  • Chest congestion
  • Chest tightness or pain
  • Short, shallow breaths

If your child exhibits any of these symptoms, they should be examined by their pediatrician for a diagnosis. If they are diagnosed with asthma, early treatment will help prevent asthma attacks and unnecessary emergency room visits.

Childhood asthma can't be cured, but with the careful management and the emergency plan, you can prevent damage to their growing lungs and unnecessary visits to the pediatric ER.

If you believe your child is having an asthma attack, get to the emergency room or call 911.
