  • It could be allergies to a plant. Or maybe pollution.

  • Pollution is lower here then where we started out at. Maybe there is some thing in the air.

  • I had/have asthma, but after having my kids I haven't need an inhaler. I haven't used one in about 9 years now.

  • Asthma can be started by many things allergies, pollution, certain foods, animals, dust! I have asthma personally so I know lol! Sometimes even certain smells will trigger it. It also can be mold...I have air purifiers in my house! It helps alot! Also having a clean house will help also! Certain states have things that can trigger asthma than in other states like texas or arizona! Also when I get a cold my asthma gets worse! So, it just depends on your child and what effects him.

  • My son has asthma, and my grandmother had it, and so does my sons grandmother (on the other side of the family) He is six months old, and is on a nebulizer three times a day... Hope his goes away. I think he had his first actual attack tonight...he stopped breathing regularly, and then just started screaming.
