Kids' asthma care can get hampered by view of parents towards medicationsAccording to a new study, the potential battle in the war for asthma symptom control could be a psychological one.

The study revealed that the reason why many of children in the US do not take their medications on time and suffer from avoidable symptoms is the leeriness of their parents for asthma medications.

Kelly Conn, M.P.H., a senior research coordinator at the University of Rochester Medical Center and lead author of the study, remarked that children can be virtually free from all such symptoms, thanks to modern-day preventive medications.

Conn remarked that the findings offer great promise to improve control of symptoms by merely addressing worries and doubts of the parents of asthmatic children. He said that this can be done by offering accurate information about the side-effects of medications.
