Overcoming Asthma In Infants Aged 5 Months?
Good morning. How to deal with asthma in babies aged 5 months …? thank you
Hello Putra, thank you for the question.
Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease that occurs in the respiratory tract so that the respiratory tract becomes narrowed and causes difficulty breathing. This asthma can attack children and adults. This asthma usually appears in people with a family history of asthma, have a family history of allergic / atopic disease, or are experiencing respiratory infections. Symptoms that appear are usually accompanied by wheezing sounds, coughing, colds, fever, and others.
Asthma in children younger than 2 years is generally difficult to enforce because complaints are usually similar to other respiratory infections, one of the most common in children less than 2 years is bronchiolitis. Therefore, to ascertain the cause is asthma or not should consult a pediatrician, the doctor will ask questions about complaints that arise and family medical history, physical examination, and some supporting examinations if needed. The doctor will provide treatment in accordance with the underlying cause. If the complaint is caused by asthma, the doctor will provide treatment in accordance with guidelines for the management of asthma in children. The doctor may give you oral medication or do nebulisation / fumigation with medications that contain respiratory looseness if needed. Because asthma is a disease that is inherited and triggered by something, it is better to find out in advance the factors that can trigger asthma in your child so that it can be avoided and asthma attacks may not occur.
Thus, hopefully useful.
