Help Your Child Control Asthma

If you have a child with asthma, did you know...


  • Swimming is the exercise that's least likely to trigger symptoms?


  • He probably needs to be on a preventive asthma medicine if he's waking up at night with breathing problems more than twice a month?

You can learn more tips to help your child better control his asthma by going to one of the hundreds of free screenings across the country given by the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology this May and June. If you're not sure whether your child has asthma, experts at the screenings will also be able to give you an accurate diagnosis. To find a participating site near you, visit
