These figures are somewhat variable for those children that have very stubborn cases and have been on steroids for long periods of time. As with adults, the acupuncture can be combining with orthodox drugs therapy so that if the child is taking bronchodilators this can be combine during treatment. As the child makes progress he or she can gradually be weaned off the drugs under their physician’s supervision.
