En espaÃ±ol: Asma inducida por el ejercicio
Some people have asthma symptoms (such as coughing, wheezing, or
trouble breathing) only when they're doing sports or being
active. Being active may be the only cause of their breathing
trouble, or it can be just one
that causes problems. Kids who have this kind of asthma need to see
a doctor and find out how to treat it. But once they do, they
usually can be active and do sports like anyone else. In fact, more
than 10% of Olympic athletes have exercise-induced asthma that
they've learned to control.
