Asthma can't be cured, but it can be controlled. The goals of asthma treatment for your child are listed below. If your child is unable to achieve all of these goals, you should contact your child's doctor for advice. Your child should be able to:
- Live an active, normal life.
- Prevent chronic and troublesome symptoms.
- Attend school every day.
- Perform daily activities, play, and engage in sports without difficulty.
- Stop urgent visits to the doctor, emergency department, or hospital.
- Use and adjust medications to control asthma with little or no side effects.
By learning about asthma and how it can be controlled, you take an important step toward managing your child's disease. Work closely with your child's asthma care team to learn all you can about asthma, how to avoid asthma triggers, what asthma medications do, and how to correctly give the asthma treatments.
