Sports for kids with asthma

By February 20, 2012

Follow me on:

Like almost all children, kids with asthma benefit from exercise. But they also can suffer from exercise-induced asthma, where exercise sets off coughing, shortness of breath, or even a full-blown asthma attack. If your child has asthma, he can still play sports. Talk with his doctor about the best ways to treat and prevent exercise-induced asthma, and get to know the triggers that most affect your kid--sometimes that's cold weather, or playing outside when the pollen count is high.
