Secondhand smoke: The most important intervention is the elimination of secondhand smoke. Children who live with smokers have a higher rate of asthma and more severe asthma symptoms. Secondhand smoke spreads throughout a living space so smoking must stop in entire living space. The car also needs to be smoke free. Follow up with doctor as child may still need medication for the wheezing.
