Asthma is a respiratory illness wherein the air passage of an individual becomes narrow, and inflamed, and the mucous membrane lining the airway secretes extra mucus. This results in, laborious breathing, shortness of breath, and a whistling sound while exhaling, and may also set off coughing.
Children suffering from asthma cannot deal with asthmatic attacks on their own. No parent would like to see their child facing/suffering from the effects of asthma. Asthma symptoms can be managed and controlled but the parents of the child may not be available to provide immediate assistance at all times. Thus the child and the parent need to know everything about asthma and its treatment to have better control of the respiratory condition. If the child's asthma symptoms are severe immediate medical assistance must be provided. At CMRI the best asthma specialist doctor and pulmonologist in Kolkata check for a detailed history of asthma symptoms in children and based on diagnosis provides an individualized approach for the management of asthma in children.

Some of the emerging signs of asthma include:
If any of the signs are felt by the child or observed by the parent, the very first step is to visit an asthma and allergy specialist so that the child gets the best possible care.
