We also recommend reading one of the important pages of this site devoted to this issue: Bronchial asthma: treatment at home by folk remedies.


Causes and Symptoms of

Asthmatic bronchitis may not differ in its manifestations, symptoms and symptoms from other types of bronchitis in children. However, if the child, at a low temperature, has a painful dry paroxysmal cough that intensifies toward the evening, and dry and wet wheezing is heard at breathing and even at a distance, and in the morning the child hardly coughs up viscous light sputum, one should suspect that it is asthmatic bronchitis and, despite any difficulties and inconveniences, to call a pediatrician: asthmatic bronchitis often turns into an attack of suffocation and requires special treatment using a number of anti-asthmatic and antiallergic drugsarats.

"Direct" heredity is rarely detected, much more often in family history there are allergic diseases, metabolic disorders and endocrinopathy. Of particular importance is the presence of these diseases in the mother during pregnancy.

Treatment of asthmatic bronchitis is similar to the treatment of bronchial asthma

Bronchial asthma in children is an allergic disease, although a specific allergen is rarely detected. Children who have a father or mother who were once susceptible to allergic diseases are usually ill.

Most often, children suffering from bronchial asthma have symptoms of exudative diathesis. Their body is already at an early age sensitized by food allergens, and then, with stratification of diseases of the respiratory system, there may be an attack of bronchial asthma.

Due to some structural and functional features of the children's body, bronchial asthma in children is somewhat different from that in adults. The narrowing of the bronchial lumen in children is mainly associated with swelling of the bronchial mucosa and increased mucus secretion and, to a lesser extent, with the spasm of the still weakly developed bronchial muscles.

For children uncharacteristically sudden, acute onset of an attack of bronchial asthma;It is usually preceded by catarrh of the upper respiratory tract or vasomotor rhinitis. The younger the child, the easier it is to develop oxygen starvation, faster breathing and shortness of breath. At many patients from the very beginning of an attack there is a dry intrusive cough. With "wet" bronchial asthma( more frequent in children), the duration of the attack increases. The attack can go on to a prolonged asthmatic state. With viral-bacterial pneumonia in young children, asthmatic syndrome can be observed, which disappears after recovery and is not repeated in the future. Of great importance is the nature, duration and frequency of seizures;the combination of bronchial asthma with chronic pneumonia significantly burdens the course of the disease. In some cases, bronchial asthma may disappear during puberty, but one must always remember that the earlier the treatment of a child is started, the greater the effect expected.

Asthma attack

The attack of bronchial asthma in children always has precursors: parents can foresee an attack on the behavior of the child( he becomes nervous, his eyes start to shine, the pupils dilate, the facial skin turns pale, coughing, sneezing).These precursors are sometimes observed for several hours or days. The very attack of bronchial asthma is a state of suffocation, in which breathing is difficult.

When an attack occurs, it is necessary to ventilate the room, call a doctor and give the child a semi-sitting position. DO NOT use mustard, mustard baths and wraps with mustard, since its odor can increase spasm of the bronchi. DO NOT also use steam inhalations, since in some cases hot steam increases spasm of the bronchi.

Children who have already used aerosols of antiasthmatic drugs should be very careful to give repeated doses of these drugs, since their action is not immediate and possible overdose.
