Does Tobacco Smoke Make My Child's Asthma Worse?

Question: Does tobacco smoke make my child's asthma worse?

Answer: Absolutely. Exposure to tobacco smoke will make a child have more problems with coughing, wheezing, with flares of their asthma and even with respiratory infections. Children should have no exposure to tobacco smoke if at all possible and smoking should not be allowed in their homes, in the cars where they are, in any place that they are because it will make their symptoms of asthma worse.
