10 Ways to Control Asthma Symptoms in Children


Children who suffer from asthma may experience attacks on a regular basis. As a parent, it’s difficult to see your child suffer from such debilitating breathing issues. As most of you already know, there are prescriptions offered by doctors that can significantly help children with asthma. In addition to oral pills and inhalers, there are several things you can do at home to help manage this condition and make breathing easier for your child.

Here are 10 Ways to Help Manage Asthma in Children:

1. Wash Pillows/Sheets Frequently

Many parents don’t realize just how much dust is hiding in your child’s pillow and sheets. When your child lies down to sleep at night, their head is surrounded by pillow cases and sheets. If they’re not cleaned frequently (at least a few times a week), your child will be breathing in dust as they sleep. As most parents know, dust is a trigger for asthma symptoms. So keep your cleaning schedule regular.
