My six year old has asthma.
See those hardwood floors? Those are for her. We ripped up all the carpet in our house and installed hardwood throughout in effort to reduce her symptoms. It worked. She went from needing nebulizer treatments twice daily from October to April to only needing them a few times each winter. With Fall fast approaching, I know it's time to get out her inhaler and nebulizer machine, check expiration dates on medications, and replace tubing. See, she's also a cold weather reactor. With her, the first symptom that she's having problems is a nagging cough. We've learned to recognize her cough and know that when it shows up, it's time to get the treatments going.
It's funny, though, how many people will say to me, “but it's just a cough…” Many people are either misinformed or uneducated about asthma. I thought this infographic may help others understand the symptoms and treatment of asthma in children.
Understanding the asthma symptoms of children goes a long way toward prevention and treatment! Please share this post to increase awareness of this < leading chronic childhood illness!
