Take the Poll: What’s the Most Frustrating Lifestyle Change Your Child Experiences Due to Asthma?

Medically reviewed by Deborah Pedersen, M.D.

Asthma affects more than 5 million children in the United States, and it can cause symptoms such as chest tightness, difficulty breathing, and wheezing. If you’re the parent or caregiver of a child with asthma, it can be scary to see them experience these symptoms. It’s also hard to watch your child have to adjust their lifestyle to accommodate for some of the changes brought on by asthma.

Consider taking the following poll to share which of the lifestyle changes your child finds the most frustrating when navigating asthma.
