We also offer preschool asthma screenings and home visits as appropriate.
Achoo! Kids, Allergies and Asthma
About 40 percent of people who have allergies also have asthma, a chronic disease that affects the airways. It usually develops during childhood and affects about 9 million kids. Fortunately, asthma can be easily controlled and managed—even during spring allergy season. CHOC is a leader in early detection and treatment of pediatric asthma, providing families the education they need to prevent asthma emergencies.
