How can I help my child with asthma?

Here are a few steps you can take to help your child manage their asthma:

Work with your child’s healthcare provider to create an asthma action plan, which outlines the steps to take when your child’s symptoms are getting worse.

Make sure your child takes their medication as prescribed and on schedule.

Help your child avoid triggers that can cause asthma symptoms, such as dust, pollen, and pets.

Encourage your child to participate in regular physical activity, but make sure they have their inhaler with them at all times.

Teach your child how to use their inhaler correctly and how to recognize the signs of an asthma attack.

Keep a close eye on your child’s symptoms and report any changes to their healthcare provider.

Make sure your child gets regular check-ups with their healthcare provider to monitor their asthma and adjust their treatment plan if needed.

And lastly, help your child understand and accept their condition, as understanding and acceptance can lead to better control of asthma.
