Children’s Asthma – Signs & Symptoms

Asthmatic children have sensitive airways in their lungs which react to triggers causing a ‘flare-up’ where the muscles around the airways squeeze tight.  This causes the airways to swell and become narrow making it harder to breathe.  A children’s asthmatic flare-up can happen slowly, over weeks or very quickly, within minutes.  The sudden or severe asthma flare-up is called a children’s asthma attack.

Childhood asthma can cause taxing daily symptoms that interfere with sports, play, school and sleep.  Triggers can include children’s food allergies, inhaling airborne pollen, catching a cold and childhood respiratory infections. 

Signs & Symptoms of Children’s Asthma include:

  • ✅ Shortness of breath
  • ✅ Wheezing
  • ✅ Chest tightness or constriction
  • ✅ Cough (may be the only symptom)
  • ✅ Cyanosis (blue tinge to lips)
  • ✅ Accessory muscle use (muscles work harder to breathe)
