Children, more than adults, tend to have a sensitive respiratory system and exhibit symptoms like coughing, sneezing, wheezing, itches, rashes and shortness of breath, almost immediately when exposed to hazardous levels of pollutants in the air. There are two things that we can do to manage the impact of these pollutants—one is to improve immunity in children and second is improving the quality of air at home.
