Take time and learn more about asthma in children, which is a serious and increasingly an increasing problem in the world.
Symptoms and Types of Asthma
Worried about the symptoms of asthma? Interestingly, chronic cough is the only symptom of asthma, which is called cough asthma. Learn more about symptoms such as wheezing, chest compressions, dyspnea, and you can talk more freely with your doctor. And the doctor already determines which tests you need to go through to confirm the diagnosis. If you have asthma and allergies, stay away from tobacco smoke, take an antihistaminic, sedative-free remedy every day during an exacerbation of an allergy, or even go through immunotherapy. In some people, asthma exacerbates only during exercise, which is called stress asthma. Learn all about asthma attacks and atypical asthma symptoms and you will be able to recognize the slightest signs of an impending attack and take the necessary measures in time.
Diagnostics and tests
Before you take medications for asthma, you probably want to first make sure that the diagnosis is correct. If the diagnosis has not yet been made, specific tests can help in this. You also want to know that the prescription drugs are really effective. That’s why pulmonary function tests are so important.
Treatment and self-help
If you are unsure of the medications your doctor prescribed you, find out more about how they work, how effective they are, what side effects and what alternative treatment is available. Although most of the medications are available in the form of tablets, the main ones are still “sprays” or inhalers – anti-inflammatory drugs or bronchodilators (expand the airways). A lot of people do not know how to use inhalers properly and therefore they can not get proper relief from coughing or chest compressions. Make sure you are using the inhaler correctly. And also you need to know when to apply to aerosol to prevent an asthma attack.
Inhalation anti-inflammatory drugs (asthma regulators) – the basis of preventive treatment for asthmatics. Some people also need to take a long-acting bronchodilator to help the respiratory tract remain open. You may also need “rescue inhalers” or quick-acting drugs that begin to act a few minutes after ingestion. When the airways are relaxed and open, the air normally enters and exits the lungs.
It does not matter what medications your doctor prescribed to you – anti-inflammatory drugs, bronchodilators or prednisone – it’s more important to take them constantly. Also, ask your doctor to give you a treatment program that will help you understand and control the symptoms of asthma on a daily basis. Make sure the doctor has prescribed a treatment program for your child; talk to your child’s teachers about his illness and the ability to bring medicine to school.
Self-help is very important, especially for children, people engaged in occupations. That’s why knowledge is so important in everyday life with asthma. Learn more about asthma and nutrition. You need to know how exercising can improve your stamina and support you in a healthy way. Also, do not forget about support, how to manage your stress and anxiety and reduce the worsening of asthma symptoms.
The main thing is to recognize the slightest signs at an early stage and in time to seek help.
If you decide to have a baby, it is very important to understand how pregnancy can affect asthma. Read the section on pregnancy and asthma, on the control of asthma during labour and lactation. If your newborn child suffers from asthma, read the article “Asthma in newborns.” You will be able to understand why some children are more predisposed to asthma than others.
