No matter what time of year, your child can experience an asthma event. Your child’s lungs can become irritated and airways can swell from a variety of triggers:
pollution and high ozone
indoor and outdoor molds
cold, dry winter air
perfumes and colognes
If your child wheezes, coughs or has shortness of breath, call our office for an asthma evaluation. If she feels like she can’t breathe, call our urgent care or get to an emergency room as soon as possible.
Your Alzein medical professional can discuss quick-relief inhalers, breathing treatments and preventative therapies and medications to keep your child – and you – breathing easier all year long.
