Dr. Warner Carr | Allergy & Asthma Associates Asthma is a chronic disease that affects more than 6.3 million children under the age of 18 in the United States. Despite currently available maintenance treatments, the CDC reports that over 38 percent of children with asthma in this country--not to mention 50 percent of adults--remain symptomatic, despite maintenance treatment. Uncontrolled asthma symptoms, such as coughing and wheezing, can lead to emergency room visits, hospital stays and missed days of school. http://www.socalallergy.com/
