Symptoms of asthma in children
The symptoms of asthma are:
- shortness of breath
- a tight feeling in the chest - children may say their chest or tummy hurts
Your child may not have all these symptoms, and they probably won’t experience them all the time. You may notice that your child’s symptoms are worse at night, in the early morning and when they’re exposed to certain triggers.
If your child has severe asthma or if they’re not using their medication properly, they may have symptoms all the time.
