CHILDHOOD ASTHMA: AVOIDING CAUSES OF DISEASE
Preventing a wheezing attack by avoiding the precipitating causes may seem glaringly obvious but it is amazing how some parents choose to ignore this side of asthma control. A typical example was 10 year-old Ben, who was very allergic to his grandparents’ dog and every time he visited them he developed breathing difficulties, which on two occasions were severe. I told his father firmly that either the visits must stop or the dog would have to go. He frowned at this suggestion and said he didn’t want to upset his own parents! He had the choice really between removing the dog and possibly losing his own son. Now it is always upsetting to give away a family pet but it hardly compares with the life of one of your children. Happily the dog moved next door and Ben is able to visit his grandparents whenever he likes without the fear of an attack.
The irritable airways of the asthmatic child are influenced by a wide variety of triggers, and control can be exercised over some of them. Environmental temperature changes, fumes, fog and similar irritants can be avoided when possible. Infections can be reduced by avoiding close contact and psychological stresses can be anticipated. However, the main thrust of control is focused most sharply on the question of allergies and particularly the house-dust mite.
