Child Asthma: Frequently Asked Questions

QI have been diagnosed with Asthma. What is asthma?

Asthma or Bronchial Asthma is a disorder whereby the lung and its tubes express oversensitivity to external as well as internal factors.

As a result of this over or hypersensitivity, which is also called allergy, the tubes or airways get inflamed and constricted, leading to reduced intake of oxygen, which leads to breathlessness or wheezing.

Asthma is a chronic and recurring condition. It has a tendency to keep appearing for years or even life time.

QWhat is the difference between child asthma and adult asthma?

Practically, they are the same. However, child asthma often tends to get better spontaneously by 12 to 15 years. Adult asthma has a tendency to last life long. It is uncommon that adult asthma presents with just a few episodes.

Also, some cases of child asthma may extend into adult asthma, if the child has a strong family history of asthma or allergies.
