Asthma Treatment In Children Aged 4 Months?
Good afternoon, I have a 4-month-old baby, my baby has asthma, if the asthma from a family can be cured or not?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Asthma is an atopic or allergic disease that is hereditary or can be passed down in the family. Asthma is characterized by chronic inflammation in the airways. There is a history of respiratory symptoms such as wheezing, tightness, heaviness in the chest and cough with varying intensity based on variations in the limits of expiratory air flow.
Because it is classified as a disease based on allergic mechanisms in the body, this disease cannot be completely cured. All allergic diseases cannot be cured but the symptoms can be controlled so that they rarely recur so that the quality of life of sufferers can be better. Control of this disease is by routine treatment using certain types of drug preparations depending on the severity of asthma.
In addition to medication, asthma can also be controlled by avoiding the precipitating factors, including:
1. viral infection
2. excessive physical exercise
3. allergen exposure
4. weather changes
5. exposure to irritants such as vehicle smoke, cigarettes or very sharp odors
With good disease control in the future the outcome of this disease is quite good.
That's all, hope you can help
