Aristocort (Triamcinolone)

Other names: Triacet, Triderm
This may seem a strange cause, as even the fittest among us will become short of breath during exercise. The difference is that in non-asthmatics when the exertion is stopped the airways quickly settle back to normal. In asthma sufferers this is not so. The breathing tubes reach their narrowest between three and five minutes later, remaining at that level for some time after. In other words the shortness of breath actually increases when exercise is stopped. Different sports are more harmful than others and running is certainly the worst. Wheezing when exercising may occur in asthmatic children within six to eight minutes, and this can be very hazardous in a cross-country run at school. Cycling induces asthma although not so consistently, perhaps because only the legs are used. Other factors, like a cold wind and exhaust fumes, may play a contributory part in asthma caused by cycling. Swimming seems to be the most innocuous of all and can be recommended to everyone. As a general rule light exercise is less likely to induce wheezing although a harder sport like football can be well tolerated provided it is in brief bursts with some respite in-between.
Almost all asthmatic children have wheezing with exercise but why this should occur is a mystery. It is thought that it must be due to the release of some chemical in the lungs that affects the muscles in the airways. This is really of little practical help at this stage, but hopefully in the future it may be possible to identify and reverse the effect of this substance.
Simon’s first attempt at cross-country running was a disaster, as he had to give up on the second lap. This was most upsetting to him as he didn’t want to appear ‘soft’ to the rest of his classmates, and his teacher thought he was not really trying. It was only when he saw Simon in considerable distress a few minutes after stopping that he realized how serious the condition had become. Simon’s parents wanted him to be able to do everything that normal children can do and naturally this is the aim of treatment in all asthmatic children.
By accurately identifying the causes of your child’s asthma it is quite easy to take the necessary steps to deal with them.
