Might not be Asthma?

Children with asthma can have other symptoms that may be
unrelated to asthma or could be making asthma worse.
In some situations, the person may not even have asthma.


Vocal Cord Dysfunction

When you take a breath and your vocal cords CLOSE instead of open, it’s harder to get air in and out of your lungs. This is known as VCD.

Habit Cough
