Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the lungs and airways. It is the leading cause of chronic illness in children along with affecting around 12-percent of all American children. Asthma is basically a breathing condition, which is mainly caused when the bronchial tubes give rise to sticky secretions along the tubes. These secretions result in classic asthmatic reactions when the airways become restricted or inflamed when coated in mucus.
Though Asthma can show its first symptoms at any age, but most of the children generally develop symptoms by 5-years of age that are normally antagonized by environmental factors like allergies, physical activity, infection, and even diet.
8 most common signs and symptoms of asthma in children include…
1. Chronic Cough
A chronic cough can be the one of the very first symptoms of asthma. Moreover, it can further develop in frequent coughing spells that can become worsen depending on various factors like the time of day, physical exertion, or if children is anxious, laughing, or crying.
A number of children with asthma mostly experience a sudden loss of energy. This can further result in sudden weakness during any physical activity that they one enjoyed doing regularly, or after an emotional event, such as fit of crying or a anger outburst that leaves them gasping for air.
In children with asthma, one can often hear a whistling sound when they take a breath in and then exhale. Moreover, you can hear a “wheeze” when these children with asthma are breathing out. This can also result in laboured breathing that makes children tired from the airway restriction.
4. Episodes of Rapid Breathing
It’s common for children with asthma experience periods of rapid breathing that might look panicked. Moreover, their chest can also raise and fall in a see-saw motion because of an episode of a difficult or laboured breathing during an asthma attack.
5. Chest Pain
Another most common sign of asthma is chest pain. Asthmatic children generally complain regarding a pain or tightness in their chest and necks muscles. This chest pain and tightness is mainly because of the restricted bronchial tubes.
6. Shortness of Breath
One most common and even frightening symptom of asthma is the shortness of breath, which is experienced by many children. Children often feel shortness of breath without any warning after any physical or emotional exertion, which mostly results in wheezing or complete loss of breath for sometime.
Allergies can also be a major sign of asthma. The majority of children with asthma mostly suffer from allergies that are likely to stick around or increase, along with symptoms of constant runny nose; red, itchy eyes; sinus congestion; sunken or swollen eyes or dark circles.
8. Difficulties in Sleeping
In a number of asthma patients, especially children, the prone position (lying down) generally worsens their symptoms because of restricting the airways further. This situation often results in a cough that aggravates during the night and disturbs a full night’s sleep.
