Infections can flare asthma, but it is difficult to tell from the information provided if this is the case for your daughter.  If you suspect that your daughter’s asthma is not being helped by the treatment she is getting at home, then it would be best to have your daughter seen in the emergency room to be sure that her asthma is under control.  An action plan to manage asthma can be very helpful in situations like this.  To learn more please read our asthma information by copying and pasting this address

into the address window of your internet browser.  To access the information specifically about the asthma action plan under the header ‘Living with Asthma’ select ‘Tools to Help Manage Asthma’ then select ‘Asthma Action Plan’.  Share this information with your primary care provider (PCP) to clarify how to handle situations like this in the future.
