• if wheezing, cough or shortness of breath persist or become worse despite medication;

• if inhalations are needed more often than every 3 or 4 hours, or one or two inhalations do not immediately make the child better;

• if the child is unable to exercise or play normally, or cannot keep up with other children;

• if sleep is disturbed because of coughing or wheezing;

• if medication is needed immediately upon waking in the morning or cannot wait until after breakfast;

• if you do not have a clear asthma management plan for the child.

Remember that most children with asthma can lead perfectly normal lives. The aim of treatment is to prevent attacks from occurring in the first place, and if they do occur, to treat them aggressively. If you have any questions about your child’s asthma, make sure you ask his doctor.
