Asthma


What is the cause of asthma

Asthma is an allergic reaction that occurs when your child inhales allergens like pollen, dust, feathers or fungal spores. The allergy affects the lining of the air passage. The child begins to wheeze and her immunity to infection is reduced. When she has an asthma attack, the lining of the air passages goes into spasm and large amounts of mucus are secreted. Your child will find it difficult to breathe. She may become pale and her lips might turn blue. 
 

What do I do if my child has asthma

You should consult a doctor or a specialist. The first thing the doctor will attempt to do is to isolate the cause of the attacks. He will probably do this by exposing your child to a range of possible allergens. Once you have identified the particular allergen responsible for your child's attacks, you task becomes much simpler. You merely have to take all possible steps to avoid your child's exposure to the allergen. For instance, if your child is allergic to dust, keep furnishings, carpeting and curtains free from dust. In addition, keep your house dry as dust mites flourish in damp houses.
 

Can asthma be linked to emotional factors

Yes. Some asthmatic children are extremely sensitive. Conflict or stress in their lives can trigger off asthma attacks. If there are indications that emotional factors may have an influence on your child's asthma, try to keep the home environment stable and conflict-free. Do all you can to minimize stress in your child's life. Such children need a lot of love and attention.

However, there is no need to go overboard. Do not treat your child like an invalid. Do not be too over-protective. If you give your child the impression that everything must come to a standstill every time she has an attack, she will learn to use the attacks to manipulate you and get her own way.
