Working together to find relief from asthma symptoms
Some children with asthma symptoms have increased coughing, wheezing, and shortness of breath when exposed to pollen, mold spores, house dust or animal danders. These exposures may increase your child’s need for more frequent or stronger medications to control symptoms.
A pediatric allergist can identify and treat environmental asthma triggers so your child will have fewer symptoms and be less dependent on rescue and controller medications.
Children with severe or difficult-to-control asthma may benefit from management by a team of specialists, including an allergist, a pulmonary specialist and a respiratory therapist.
