For many kids, breathing is easy. But for a child suffering from asthma, every day brings new challenges and the fear that breathing could become difficult at any time. Children with asthma have very sensitive airways, which can become irritated or swollen in response to certain triggers like allergens, cold weather, or exercise. This irritation makes it difficult to breathe. But with the right treatment, our medical team may be able to reduce the frequency and severity of asthma symptoms in your child, allowing him or her to enjoy a fuller, more active life.
