(HealthDay News) -- Kids with asthma don't need to stay on the bench. Under a doctor's care, they can still exercise and play sports, as long as their asthma is under control, the Nemours Foundation says.
To avoid an asthma attack and a possible trip to the emergency room, all medications must be taken as prescribed, the foundation says.
If your child isn't having regular asthma attacks, he should be able to play any sport, although endurance sports like running, biking, basketball and soccer may be more difficult.
Your child should always carry emergency medication and make the coach aware of the child's condition, the foundation says.
