What Exactly is Asthma?
Asthma is usually the result of a very reactive airway that causes inflammation/irritation and recurrent reversible obstruction of the airways. This is a chronic problem and best controlled in the stable environment of a medical home. The symptoms mimic what is referred to as a “cold.” The takeaway message is to be sure to seek a comprehensive evaluation if your child has a chronic or lingering cough requiring use of OTC cough syrup.
Cough is usually common just before sleeping, through the night or on waking up. The sufferers may have intolerance of exercise due to chest tightness or cough, gagging on phlegm or vomiting while coughing.
