Back to school time is a season where many children with Asthma will suffer a flare of symptoms. Pollen, dust mites, animal dander and viral upper respiratory infections (colds) all contribute to “trigger” and inflame asthma symptoms.
Cough( especially at night or with exercise)
Shortness of breath
If your child has asthma or has symptoms that might suggest asthma, please schedule an appointment. We like to see our patients with asthma in the fall and spring to ensure that they are on the correct controller medications to help prevent symptom flares. Flu vaccines are very important to receive as well.
