Asthma Treatment in Children

At Horizon Pediatrics & Primary Care, Dr. Joe Williams, Dr. Janina Czartolomna and Dr. Mark Flanigan and the team are ready to answer your questions about how children are affected by asthma in Thornton and Denver, CO.

Children and Asthma

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly six million children across the U.S. have asthma. This chronic lung condition is the most common disease children face. Unfortunately, many parents are unaware their children have asthma. In most cases, children don't know how to express symptoms to their parents.

Schedule a consultation with our team to find out if your child is struggling with undiagnosed asthma in Thornton and Denver, Co.  

Common Symptoms

Many children experience symptoms before the age of five. Since toddlers and preschoolers have small and narrow bronchial tubes, common chest and head colds can narrow these passageways even more – making it difficult for parents to distinguish between symptoms of an illness or symptoms caused by asthma.

However, there are some common symptoms parents can watch out for:

  • Excessive night coughing
  • Wheezing or whistling sound while breathing
  • Labored or fast breathing
  • Frequent chest colds
  • Consistent shortness of breath while active
  • Persistent chest tightness

Children who have asthma must receive proper care and treatment to manage the disease. Doctors can help put children on the path to recovery by building a personalized action plan once a diagnosis is confirmed.

Inhalers, nebulizers and asthma medications are all safe and effective options to treat this chronic lung disease in children. Additionally, doctors recommend that children with this lung condition stay up-to-date on all of their immunizations and vaccines. Parents should also stay in communication with the medical staff at their child's school in the event there is an emergency medical situation such as an asthma attack.

Asthma in Thornton and Denver, CO shouldn't hold a child back from enjoying their best lives. To learn more about diagnosing and treating this common lung condition in children, contact us at Horizon Pediatrics & Primary Care to speak with Dr. Williams, Dr. Czartolomna or Dr. Flanigan today by calling (720) 929-8300 (Thornton) or (720) 489-1111 (Denver).
