If your child has asthma, then our pediatricians offer treatment options that can help manage symptoms and allow your children to stay healthy and active. We offer plans and long-term solutions to help your child manage their symptoms and make their flare-ups easier and less stressful for both of you through our services. We can create a plan that controls their asthma and works best for your child’s needs by working with our doctors.

How We Treat Asthma Flare-ups in Children

 As an inflammatory disease of the lung’s air passages, asthma can make it difficult for your child to breathe. Its severity varies, and there is no cure for asthma, but treatments help control it. Our pediatric experts at Rose Creek Pediatrics are specially trained to diagnose, treat, and help manage your child’s asthma.

Asthma flare-ups cause muscle spasms throughout the airways, causing the air passages to become narrowed or blocked. This can make it harder for air to move through those passages, causing swelling and thickening the airway walls. It also causes mucus and phlegm to develop inside those airways, making it difficult for oxygen and carbon dioxide to move in and out of the body. Both of these factors make it hard to breathe, causing symptoms that include:

  • Wheezing
  • Coughing
  • Extra Phlegm and Mucus
  • Chest Tightness
  • Coughing Fits at Night

By managing your child’s asthma, your child won’t have to miss the outdoors or high-energy activities. The foundation for managing asthma is through an effective treatment plan. Our process works to identify what triggers your child’s asthma to reduce its symptoms and control asthma through medications. Our pediatric specialists will work closely with you and your child to develop treatment plans to help your child become aware of their triggers and learn what medications they should take and when they should take them.

Manage Your Child’s Asthma With Us

Our pediatric clinic will also work with teachers, coaches, and caregivers within your community to help you become more aware of your child’s asthma flare-ups. Through each visit with us, our ways of helping you and your child control asthma include:

  • Understanding Flare-Ups: Flare-ups can be caused by several triggers and can occur in varying frequencies, causing an increasing need for medication to control symptoms. These flare-ups can be reviewed and adjusted by helping you and your family understand this frequency and symptoms.
  • Avoiding Triggers: Triggers can vary but mainly come from environmental sources, including pollen, pet hair, mold, exercise, and air quality. By learning about your child’s symptoms, we can manage and update your child’s medications and treatment plan.
  • Setting Goals and Keeping Track: Any questions or concerns you may have, we can help. We can also provide resources for keeping track of triggers, flare-up frequencies, and your child’s medications.
  • Developing an Asthma Team: We also work with your child’s community to keep your child safe, cooperating with our local schools and community centers to help your child have a safe, healthy, and happy life.
