(HealthDay News) -- It's only natural that parents of children with asthma worry about the condition flaring up.
But which symptoms actually warrant a trip to the emergency room? The Nemours Foundation says to keep your eyes peeled for these warning signs:
- Your child's nails or face color turns blue or grayish.
- Your child has trouble talking.
- You can see the area between your child's ribs or base of the neck contract.
- Your child's rescue medications aren't working to stop the flare-up.
If your child shows any of these signs, seek medical attention immediately.
