Asthma affects 7 million children in the US and is the leading cause of chronic illness in children.
It can often be hard to diagnose due to symptoms similar to other illnesses, and the fact that not all children have the same symptoms.
It is very challenging to diagnose asthma in under 5's. The symptoms can be caused by various other illnesses, and young children do not understand well enough to use the breathing equipment that a test requires.
This infographic is meant as a quick reference guide on the symptoms, triggers, and treatments of asthma in children. Please do not use it as medical advice, and if your child is suffering from any of the symptoms seek a medical professional immediately.
