Welcome to the asthma corner. I created this corner specifically because of the importance of asthma. If your child has asthma it is important to know that you are not alone. Up to 10% of children have asthma, most of whom will develop asthma in the first couple of years of life.
I know that asthma may be disruptive to your child, especially if he or she has been hospitalized or had multiple visits to the emergency room. But I can also tell you that most children’s asthma can be well-controlled if parents are educated about asthma, recognize what the symptoms are, and know what to do about them.
Here in the Asthma Corner, you’ll find answers to the most common questions about childhood asthma – and strategies you can use to greatly help your child lead a full and active life.
