An All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) doctor has warned parents that children who suffer from recurrent cough, cold and wheezing should be examined by a physician as they may be suffering from asthma.
Speaking at a public lecture titled 'Asthma among children' AIIMS senior pediatrician Dr S K Kabra added that if children continue to suffer from asthma symptoms when they turn 14 years of age, then it was a big reason to worry for parents as their child would require serious medication to keep the condition in control.

Dust present on carpets, wall hangings, air conditioners, mosquito sprays, perfumes, body deodorants and pollens should also be avoided by asthmatic children as they can be effective in prevention of exacerbation of asthma", Kabra said.
