Asthma

Effective treatment for asthma

Asthma is a common condition, one that manifests early in childhood. Asthma affects your child’s ability to breathe and can make it difficult to participate in everyday activities. If you suspect your child may have asthma, call the offices of Medico M.D today. We can provide effective treatment so that they can participate in their favorite activities without having to worry about catching their breath.

Know the symptoms of asthma

Unlike respiratory illnesses, asthma makes itself known when most people are engaged in activities such as running. The symptoms can include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightness or pain
  • Wheezing when exhaling, which is a common sign of asthma in children
  • Trouble sleeping caused by shortness of breath, coughing, or wheezing
  • Coughing or wheezing attacks that are worsened by a respiratory virus, such as a cold or the flu

If your child is suffering from any of the above conditions make an appointment today and we can diagnose if they have asthma or another type of respiratory illness. Depending on the severity of asthma, we can recommend medications including the use of inhaled corticosteroids, commonly used through an inhaler, which can reduce inflammation and have your kids breathing easy again.
