For cold find out whether you have any specific allergy like dust, fumes, chemicals, pollens etc. See ENT specialist to find out you do not have any defect in nose.

Troubled Breathing - Can It Be a Sign of Asthma?

dnb pediatrics
Pediatrician,
Troubled Breathing - Can It Be a Sign of Asthma?

Is your child getting exhausted after a bout of cough? Does he or she suffer from constant wheezing and tightness of the chest? Does your child feel drained out after climbing a flight of stairs? Do you know a child who always seems to run out of breath and cannot participate in school sports tournaments or play outside for a long time? The child could be suffering from asthma, which is a serious breathing problem. Most children are affected by asthma. Staying in a polluted city just makes the condition worse.

Asthma - Know the disease

  1. Asthma is a condition that causes inflammation of the airways, known as trachea and bronchioles.
  2. The muscles around the airways constrict and prevent the smooth flow of air.
  3. The lining of the bronchioles swell and block the airways.
  4. Asthma is mostly triggered by an allergic reaction.
  5. There is a difficulty in breathing out. Exhalation of air is often accompanied by a wheezing, that is, a whistling sound.
  6. There is a constant shortness of breath, feeling out of breath and gasping for air.
  7. There is an uncomfortable tightness in the chest, the feeling of not breathing in enough air.
  8. Coughing bouts in the middle of the night, that leave the child feeling exhausted and completely out of breath.

Causes of Asthma 

Asthma is mostly triggered by asthma allergens. These allergens are mostly pollens and animal fur.

  1. Exposure to pollution, such as dust and smoke
  2. Heredity
  3. Obesity
  4. History of heartburn, GERD and acid reflux
  5. Inflammation of sinus and airways
  6. History of bronchial disorders and pneumonia
  7. Viral infections
  8. Chronic rhinitis
  9. Low immunity causing constant cold and blockage of nose

Treatments of asthma

  1. A nebulizer that turns asthma medicine into a mist can then be inhaled easily
  2. An inhaler can be used to take in inhaled steroids into the lungs or a bronchodilutor
  3. Try and avoid asthma triggers and allergens as much as possible
  4. Avoid physical stress and heat
  5. Get sufficient rest of about 7-8 hours every day 

    If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pulmonologist.

I have asthma since 5 years. I took several treatments but it is not cured. Please tell me is it cured permanently. Then please tell me suggestions and treatments to cure it permanently. Please tell me.

Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of lungs. In most of the cases asthma can be only controlled and not cured, like many other chronic diseases such as high bp and diabetes. The target of treatment therefore should be good control.

My father has an asthma. What is the effect of using an asthma preventer for long term?

DNB(Respiratory Diseases), MBBS
Pulmonologist, Jabalpur
Using high doses of inhaled corticosetoids for prolonged periods have theoretical risk of osteoporosis, cataract, high bp, diabetes, skin lesions, weight gain etc. But practically these risks are rarely seen and occur only in those who have taken very high doses and that too for a long long time.

I am suffering from bronchitis and breathlessness and once in a day I have to take puff. This has been happening for the last 1 year. I also smoke 3 ciggrates a day. Please suggest.

You need to stop smoking first. It is the first and foremost step to get rid of bronchitis. If u can not quit smoking use nicotine chewing gum to control your craving to smoke. Next you need to take inhalers. Depending upon your condition u may need to take more than one inhalers. One inhaler to take regularly and another as rescue medication during severe breathlessness. Inform me which medicines u are taking right now.

Immunity transferred from mother is highest in initial months. As baby grow the body starts own defence system. Breastfeeding feed is the best feed for immunity without any side effects and infection. You have to take care of infection by avoiding top feeding, avoiding cotract with sick persons particularly young children.

You maybe suffering from allergic rhinitis and pharyngitis. You need to avoid the cause of your allergies and also take anti allergy medications. Please consult for prescription. If you have an infection and have fever you will need to do a course of antibiotics. For now do warm saline gargle and steam inhalation 3 times a day.
