Your Child's Asthma: A Guide for Parents
John Hunt, author
Asthma is not a diagnosis. If you or your doctor thinks your child might have asthma, your next question should be: "What disease is causing my child to have asthma?" It's a question often forgotten. There are many diseases that cause asthma, and these diseases require different therapies. Your Child's Asthma is unique, just as your child is unique. This book is entirely focused on the diagnosis and management of the individual child. There is no cookbook medicine here. In Your Child's Asthma, you will learn about the different causes of asthma your child may have, and the treatments that are most effective for each cause of asthma. You will learn about viruses and allergies and everything else that causes wheezing and coughing in babies through young adults. Your Child's Asthma is authored by a pediatrician who is also a pulmonologist and an allergist/immunologist. Dr. Hunt provides parents with authoritative and up-to-date information, moderated always by straightforward common sense.
