Asthma Care and Evaluation
Asthma in Children
Asthma can start at any age in life, which can make it difficult for parents to identify in very young children. Since the symptoms can be similar to a cold or viral infection, it’s important to schedule an appointment to get a professional evaluation. Some of the most common symptoms in pediatric asthma include:
- Coughing – notably at night
- Whistling and Wheezing – especially during exhalation
- Frequent Colds – strangely lingering
- Difficulty Breathing
Asthma in Adults
Sometimes, asthma doesn’t show up until much later in life. If you are an adult, and you cannot take in a deep breath of fresh air without prompting breathing difficulties or chest-tightening, then you need to schedule asthma testing right away. You have probably developed asthma without even realizing it. It’s important not to delay a medical diagnosis and treatment, as this could lead to serious health problems.
The Allergy and Asthma Center of Corpus Christi has the experience and technology that can properly diagnose and treat asthma. Whether you are unsure if you have asthma, we can help. Don’t delay scheduling an appointment so that you can receive the proper evaluation and treatment you need to get back on the path to breathing with ease. Contact us today!
