Symptoms, which include wheezing, coughing, and breathlessness, usually start to occur after the first year, though from six months babies can develop a persistent nighttime cough. Asthma may be caused by an allergic reaction to substances such as house dust mites, pollen, animal dander, or food. Asthma occurs when the sensitive linings of the airways in the lungs (bronchial tubes) are irritated, swell, and go into spasm, restricting air flow. The linings may then leak mucus, which clogs the air passages even more, making coughing and wheezing worse. Babies under a year may get bronchiolitis, which has symptoms similar to those of asthma but is caused by a viral infection. Any baby with a recurrent or chronic cough should be monitored for asthma.
