In brief: Asthma in infant

Young infant and children can have asthma too.
Since infant and young children cannot do a lung function test, diagnosis of asthma in this population is based on their risks of developing this disease. Parental history of asthma, the kids' other atopic diseases like eczema, food allergy, rhinitis... And their history of wheezing are major risk factors for having asthma in this population.
