Childhood asthma: What you need to know

About 6 million children in the U.S. have asthma,  according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) . It's a chronic condition that causes the sides of the airways in the lungs to become too narrow so that too little air moves in and out of the lungs.

What are the symptoms of asthma?

When you think of asthma symptoms, you probably think of wheezing. Although that's definitely one of its signs and symptoms,  WebMD says there are also others you'll want to look out for in your child, including the following:

Frequent coughing spells – may be the only symptom present Less energy while playing – needing frequent breaks when compared to his or her friends Labored, rapid breathing Tightness in the chest or neck muscles Weakness or tiredness Dark circles under the eyes Frequent headaches

Vanilla covered it pretty well, but I will add that this disease varies widely from person to person in it's manifestations. Most asthmatics require at least a long acting bronchodilator(Serevent, Formoterol or Spiriva) and a rescue, or quick acting bronchodilator
