Warning signs of an asthma attack

5) Treating asthma early

Blue inhaler


By acting quickly at home you might stop the asthma getting worse. You may even stop a hospital admission.


As soon as you see your child’s warning signs start using their blue inhaler straight away.
You will do your child no harm in giving this reliever inhaler and will do a lot of good.

Self management

If symptoms are early or mild give up to 5 puffs of the blue inhaler using a spacer every 4 hours for a few days while symptoms last.
