The Cause Of Coughing In A Recurring Child?

good evening doctor,

1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for the question


Asthma in children occurs because the lower airways are easily inflamed when exposed to allergens. Chronic cough is often the main symptom in a child's asthma suspicion, remembering that the symptoms of a child's asthma can vary greatly, not only shortness accompanied by wheezing. Coughing also tends to get heavy when the child is having an airway infection. Therefore it is very possible if the child still has a cough as long as asthma has not been controlled or often recurs.


Related to the history of bronchitis, it is known that children with asthma will experience a longer healing period of bronchitis or other airway infections compared to children who do not have asthma. Allergies, asthma, and bronchitis in children are closely related to one another. Bronchitis can occur as a result of an asthma attack and exposure to an allergen, or conversely it can cause an asthma attack to get worse. Similar to complaints of cough, bronchitis episodes can still occur during an asthma attack still often recur.


The main treatment is to avoid triggers and asthma symptoms control. Management of asthma in children should be based on recommendations and monitoring by a pediatrician. Some triggers that need to be avoided include:


1. Viral infections such as flu
2. Exposed to air pollution or cigarette smoke
3. House dust allergy
4. Heavy physical activity
5. Changes in the weather
6. Cold temperatures


That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
