Contents, what is Cough-Variant Asthma, some children with a persistent muscle cough have a condition called cough variant asthma.
This means that we believe that the child is coughing because his or her breathing tubes (bronchi) are reacting to irritation by squeezing in to a smaller size, just like in asthma.
Children with cough variant asthma do not make the wheezing sound that we usually hear in children with ordinary asthma, though.
This can make it difficult to diagnose the condition, and very often children with cough variant asthma have been through a number of other diagnoses or treatments.
Parents of children with cough variant asthma usually find that regular cough and cold medicines dont help their children, and of course antibiotics dont help either.
Cough variant asthma can be a very frustrating condition. Once of the most important clues to learning that a child has cough variant asthma is that these children very often get a cough with every cold or upper respiratory infection (URI).
The cough usually lasts for much longer than the original infection.
