Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the airways that can lead to reversible obstruction episodes called ‘asthma attacks’. While these episodes happen intermittently and can be triggered by various stimuli, the underlying inflammation is chronic.
Children that suffer from asthma should see a doctor regularly to properly manage their condition. In this video, you can learn more about when a child with asthma should visit his or her pediatrician for advice or treatment.
