My 5years old son was just recently diagnosed with asthma and undergoing treatment. I need advice from our professionals on what other precautions to take. Apparently, I remember that when he was born the doctor said then that he was not breathing well and I didn't get to see him until 5days after birth which was through c.s.Please is there a correlation here

In childhood asthma, the lungs and airways become easily inflamed when exposed to certain triggers such as inhaling airborne pollen or catching a cold or other respiratory infection.
Asthma is a chronic condition characterized by reversible obstruction of the airways. This is because the airway of an individual with asthma is programmed to react this way when exposed to some substances or conditions. These substances / conditions are what we call triggers.
