Asthma is not a diagnosis.
If you or your doctor thinks your child might have asthma, your next question should be: "What disease is causing my child to have asthma?"
There are many diseases that cause asthma, and these diseases require different therapies. Learning what is causing your child's asthma, wheezing, or coughing is the most important step to ensure that your child receives the best treatment. Unfortunately, that first diagnostic step is skipped all too often.
Your child's asthma is unique, just as your child is unique.
In this book, you will learn the treatments that will work or won't work for the type-or types-of asthma your child has. You will learn about viruses and allergies and everything else that causes wheezing and coughing in babies through young adults.
Your Child's Asthma provides not only the most relevant and up-to-date information, but also a healthy dose of common sense.
