Asthma is a common chronic inflammatory condition of the airways that affects over 26 million people. At The Allergy and Asthma Center of Corpus Christi, our board-certified physicians have helped hundreds of Texans effectively monitor and treat their asthma triggers for over 30 years. While there are several things that can trigger an asthma attack, exposure to allergens such as pollen, dust mites, and animal dander can make you more susceptible. If you’re experiencing breathing difficulties that interfere with your daily activities, contact a professional asthma and allergy specialist for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Asthma Symptoms In Childrendreamstime_xxl_55991898

Most children diagnosed with asthma experience symptoms before they turn five. Since asthma can start very young in children, it can be difficult for parents to recognize the early symptoms. While there are a wide range of symptoms for pediatric asthma, some of the most common symptoms include:

  • Coughing, especially in the evening or at night
  • Whistling and wheezing sounds when breathing, especially during exhalation
  • Frequent colds that linger
  • Difficulty breathing

If your child is experiencing any of the above symptoms, contact our asthma facility today to schedule an appointment. Our doctors will work closely with you and your child to diagnose the leading irritants of their asthma and will recommend a customized treatment plan for their unique condition.
