Develop plan: A structured home treatment plan based on your pattern of symptoms & additional info like peak flow tests can often get your symptoms under control.Meet with your doc and take in a diary of any symptoms, triggering events, past treatment,etc. Then come up with a daily treatment plan with modifications based on daily events. Control is achievable but you must put in the work.

Control inflammation: Asthma is defined as inflammation in the airways; more asthma attacks means more inflammation. To decrease flareups, find out what triggers your asthma (allergies, infections, acid reflux, irritants, etc.) and avoid these as much as possible. You may also need medication that specifically targets inflammation; stay on this as prescribed to keep asthma under control. See your doctor regularly too.

Follow Action Plan: Recurrent asthma attacks at school are a sign that your child's asthma is not well controlled. If the problem persists even if you're following the asthma action plan, that means that the asthma is changing and the action plan needs to be adjusted. Time to see your allergist for a reevaluation.
