Overcoming Children Bronchitis And Asthma Symptoms?
Dear doctor, My 8-year-old child has a history of asthma and was treated a week ago because of bronchial symptoms from an x-ray. My child often coughs if he has been coughing for too long and sometimes suffers from asthma / recurrence. Even last week before my child arrived at the hospital for complaining of chest pain, my son also happened to be very active. What I want to ask is how to prevent my child from coughing too much. And can my child recover completely from asthma and the symptoms of bronitis? Incidentally at home also 24 hours using ac and also my husband smoking. What is the cause of my son’s bronitis and asthma. Explanation please. Thank you

With a history of asthma, frequent coughing and hospitalization for bronchitis, it is important to start identifying factors that aggravate and trigger complaints of cough or asthma. If you encounter these risk factors around your child, you should begin to control and prevent them.
In general, complaints from children who are often sick (whether coughing, asthma or digestive pain) are often influenced by the child's stamina which is not optimal, either due to fatigue or unhealthy intake of healthy food. So starting the steps of child care and prevention by increasing stamina and endurance of his body, is expected to prevent complaints of pain felt by your child.
Some of the conditions below can trigger a child's stamina and healthy children easily decrease:
1. Obesity or obesity
2. Less intake of vegetable and fruit foods
3. Often sleep late at night
4. Fatigue due to crowded children's activities, such as school, tutoring, training, or religious activities
5. Lack of rest
6. The consumption habits of snacks that are not well maintained hygiene and health
7. Exercise light and regular exercise, to increase the endurance of the respiratory system, such as biking, or swimming
8. Do not immediately consult a doctor if a cough or pain appears, if your child is sick, then immediately see a doctor if the next day has not improved
By doing monitoring, evaluating, self-care and prevention, it is hoped that your child's stamina will be stronger and his body endurance will be better. With good endurance, is expected to prevent recurrence of cough and asthma complaints.
When endurance and stmina improvement efforts have been made, then other risk factors from the environment also need to be controlled, such as:
1. Keep cigarette smoke away from children, so if there are smokers at home, smokers should smoke outside the home so that exposure to children is very small
2. Clean the AC regularly, the presence of dust and C which is not maintained cleanliness can trigger coughing or allergic complaints in patients
3. If your house has a lot of dust or is next to a large highway, or next to an industry, then filter the dust from the highway with shade plants in front of the house
4. Maintain cleanliness of the room, bed, or chair that is often in contact with your child
5. Optimize the light into the room of the house
However, if all efforts have been made, but these complaints often arise and bother your child, then visit your pediatrician, so the doctor can provide direction and recommendations for you. Thus, doctors can provide support in preventing recurrence of complaints of cough or asthma. When fully recovered, the likelihood is small, but it is anticipated that these complaints can be prevented and do not often recur and are not severe when relapses.
