Asthma in Children
How Is Asthma Treated?
Once your child has been diagnosed with asthma, they will be prescribed medications to control their symptoms.
Controller medications are used to prevent symptoms. They decrease the swelling and inflammation in the airways. These medications also reduce mucus build-up in the airways. Reliever medications are used to treat symptoms when they occur. They open narrow airways by relaxing the muscles that constrict them.
