Why do we recommend inhaling glucocorticoid to your child?
There is airway inflammation in children with asthma, bronchiolitis and wheezing, so anti-inflammatory treatment is needed to improve symptoms and improve lung function.
The Global Initiative for the Prevention and treatment of Asthma makes it clear that glucocorticoid is the most effective anti-inflammatory drug. In the past, more for the whole body medication, such as intravenous, intramuscular injection or oral treatment. But long-term systemic glucocorticoid therapy can lead to osteoporosis, hyperglycemia and other complications, and can inhibit growth and development.
Adopted Aerosol inhalation allows the drug to enter the airway directly, and this way is not only improve the local anti-inflammatory effect, but also reduce the side effects caused by the use of hormones throughout the body, and can be used continuously for a long time.
