Etiology, pathophysiology, and management of Allergic Asthma in Children’s 


Journal of Pediatrics & Neonatal Care
Anil Kumar Mavi, Raj Kumar

Abstract

Many young toddlers experience frequent chest discomfort, wheezing, and coughing. Before the age of six, one-third of preschoolers experience these symptoms, yet only 40% of these wheezing preschoolers go on to develop asthma. The majority of youngsters in older school-aged children suffer asthma. Controlling asthma affects quality of life. Only a small portion of patients who receive asthma therapy succeed in controlling their condition. Even if co-morbidities, an erroneous diagnosis, or subpar inhaling technique could be to blame, non-adherence is frequently the main factor in therapy failures. Nonpharmacological interventions focus on avoiding cigarette smoke and avoiding allergens when a child is allergic. The GINA and the British Guideline for the Therapy of Asthma are two international standards for pharmacological management.
