with asthma, coughing and wheezing are big symptoms, i have had asthma since i was 7yrs od, and i am now 32, and also smoke, E is right, make sure your child knows the risks of smoking especially with asthma. Change of season
will also trigger asthma attacks, especially in allergy season
, and bad weather. I know cold wheather always triggered it for me. its best to monitor it as much as possible, also a rapid heartbeat can also be a sign of an oncoming asthma attack.
