Recognizing symptoms of EIB (exercise-induced bronchospasm) in children1

Is your child:

  • Having trouble breathing during or after playing?
  • Wheezing?
  • Coughing during or after playing?

If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, your child may be experiencing EIB, a condition that can make it hard to breathe during or after exercise. That’s why it’s important to speak with your child’s healthcare provider about these symptoms. Only your child’s healthcare provider can diagnose your child.

Check your child’s symptoms

If your child is showing any of the asthma symptoms listed above, talk with your child’s pediatrician. Ask if ProAir® HFA can help.
