SAVE YOUR CHILD FROM ASTHMA
is one of the most common disorder affecting children which
has to be diagnosed and treated at an early stage. Asthma
is a chronic lung disease characterized by tight airways.
A child who suffers from Asthma may get an attack of Asthma
because of number of reasons namely referred to as "triggers."
Viral infections are the most common triggers in young children.
Other triggers include smoke, animal dander, pollens, molds,
house dust, mites, fumes and fragrances, or cold air.
When a person gets an attack of Asthma his muscles surrounding
the airways tighten, narrowing the caliber of the airways.
Second, the airways are narrowed by inflammation and swelling
of the airway lining. This leads to the airway narrowing:
the accumulation of mucus and other fluids, which can plug
the airways. When the child suffers the attack the airways
narrow and breathing becomes faster. The symptom of wheezing
or coughing may follow. The child might have to work hard
to breathe, as evidenced by grunting, flaring of the nostrils,
or pulling in of the muscles between the ribs. Some children
with asthma have wheezing with no cough; some have cough with
no audible wheezing; and some have both. If a child with asthma
has difficulty speaking or sleeping because of wheezing, cough,
or shortness of breath, it is important to contact the doctor
The risk of getting asthma depends both on genetics and on
the environment. Asthma tends to run in families (along with
eczema and hay fever). It is more common in premature infants
and in those who have had RSV bronchiolitis. Those who are
obese are at much higher risk.
Asthma can also be prevented in infants if mothers breastfeed
their babies. Exercise and Yoga also helps Asthmatic patients
a lot. The other important thing is to treat asthma the right
way and treating allergies from the very beginning can be
a wonderfully effective way to prevent asthma. If you think
that your child is suffering from Asthma then you should contact
your doctor right away for proper medication. Asthma can be
treated and you can help your child lead a happy life.
