Couchtater pretty much covered but I just wanted to add: sometimes children will ignore their asthma and won't tell you when they first start having problems - they don't want to draw attention to themselves.. Besides the breathlessness and coughing, if they are having trouble breathing, their lips may start to take on a slight blue tinge. However, if the child is not caucasian then it might be a bit harder to see the change of color.
