What doctors says about Childhood Asthma

Asthma is the most common respiratory disorder of children. Chronic inflammation of the bronchial mucosa and hyper reactive airways results in broncho constriction and reversible airway narrowing. It typically presents with wheeze, dry cough, difficulty breathing and/or chest tightness. Managing childhood asthma involves both an appreciation of current treatment practice but also a willingness to educate and support the child and their family in the longer-term. Different phenotypes of childhood asthma are increasingly being recognized. Transient early wheezers where wheezing is commonly associated with viral upper respiratory infections. This is most likely to be grown out of by about 3 years, particularly in those children without a family or personal history of atopy. Non-atopic  wheezers who again are likely to outgrow symptoms by early school age. 
Children who go on to develop a more persistent, atopic asthma, associated with raised immunoglobulin E (IgE) levels.

Presentation
