We begin assessing a child for asthma after the parent or the child reports typical asthma symptoms. Because these symptoms may be related to other illnesses or conditions, we will work to rule out other issues before making a diagnosis of asthma. In children younger than five, additional tests may not be accurate.
Once a diagnosis of asthma has been reached, we will develop a treatment program for the child. This treatment plan may include maintenance medication, rescue medication, and medication to control asthma. Well-Rooted Pediatrics will also explain how to recognize and address worsening asthma or an asthma attack when it occurs.
In order to ensure that the child’s asthma is well controlled, regular visits with Well-Rooted Pediatrics is recommended. If a child experiences an unexpected flare in symptoms, parents should make an appointment Well-Rooted Pediatrics to address the issue.
