Allergies, asthma - or both?
Symptoms of allergies and asthma can overlap:
- Most children with asthma have symptoms before they are 5 years old. They include being short of breath, wheezing and coughing, especially at night.
- Allergies can trigger the difficult breathing of asthma. Other symptoms include rashes, itchy eyes and a runny nose.
The best way to control your child’s asthma or allergies isn’t to limit activities, but to use proper medications. Our pediatric specialists in Pulmonology
can diagnose your child’s condition and help manage it.
