In brief: Reliever/controller

There are two types of asthma meds.
Relievers. That are quick acting bronchodilators designed to "open up" the airways, and controllers. That attack the underlying cause of asthma: chronic inflammation.

In brief: Very meticulously !

With fall and flu season already here! it is alway a good thing to ask your md for guidance! some mild cases are treated with albuterol pump or mdi, the worse ones from inhaled steroids + albuterol .
.. Complicated yes! but surely manageable .. Pls see you md ..Regards!

In brief: Environment and medi

Often childhood asthma is allergy based.
Have the child checked and remove as much as possible causes like animal dander, dust mites-especially in bedroom, rugs.Etc.Check child's school for same possibilities. If chronic, inhaled steroids coupled with a rescue inhaler is routine and effective. Make sure school nurse is aware and have action plan developed with pediatrician.
