How are asthma flare-ups controlled by following an asthma action plan?

ANSWER

Your child will have fewer asthma symptoms and flare-ups. With the proper education and having the right medications on hand, families can learn to control most minor asthma flare-ups by starting treatment early, which will mean less emergency room visits and fewer admissions, if any, to the hospital.

Your doctor should provide a written step-by-step plan outlining exactly what to do if your child has a flare-up. The plan is different for each child.
