Rodents Can Affect Childhood Asthma

Asthma is not a disease to take likely. There are 25 million Americans that have been diagnosed with asthma and half are children It affects the airways in the lungs and patients can experience wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, tightness and pain in the chest. It is more dangerous for children to develop asthma because they have smaller airways and underdeveloped respiratory systems. These attacks can be triggered by allergens, exercise, smoke, pollution, or airway infections.

This time of year, rodents are tearing into homes to look for places to have their babies. Those rodents are moving around in the residence without being detected and leaving around rodent hair, urine, and fecal allergens which can trigger allergic reactions. People can be allergic to rodents as cats and dogs just the same. In a closed environment rodent droppings, dead skin, or their decomposing bodies can be inhaled which can trigger an asthma attack.
