Asthma plan for back to school

An estimated 7 million U.S. kids under the age of 18 have been diagnosed with asthma, and more than 13 million days of school are missed each year because of the condition, according to the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology.

Many asthma symptoms in children tend to appear during school hours. This situation can be quite stressful since parents cannot be there to take care of it, like they would do at home. Although there isn’t a complete cure for asthma, it can be manageable if proper care is taken ahead of time. Asthma symptoms could really put a damper on your child’s daily activities, so make the effort to keep your child’s asthma under control.
