Stress-Induced asthma in young children. With an increase in emotional feelings many of the children have because of the diagnosis itself. They become very emotional. They feel separated. They may not have the family support they need. The parents may not be knowledgeable in asthma. It may be a very fearful thing for them and when that happens and when the persons around the patient become fearful and overprotective it leads to increased anxiousness. And so that's very stressful for the child. And it also depends on the age of the child. How much they understand. How many episodes they have been through before of asthma that they just couldn't breath and they just felt like that they didn't know what to do. So and also they get feeling so isolated because of the illness if they're at school. They miss school days many times. But with proper diagnosis and proper medication and the subject matters being with that the parents understand, or the caregiver, whomever is taking care of the child, understands to remain calm and not just continuously separate the child from their peers or make them feel like they have to sit on the bench all the time and they cannot participate. But they live a normal life with the medication regime, doing everything they're supposed to do in their diet, and follow up with their doctor. They can live a less stress-induced life with asthma.
