This is an area that needs much more research to provide a specific answer to your question. Patients who have COVID-19 symptoms lasting for several months have been referred to as “long COVID-19” or “long-haul COVID-19" patients. This includes patients with asthma.
Most children who have a COVID-19 infection experience minimal symptoms lasting 1-2 weeks. Approximately 10% of children have ongoing symptoms. This is about 3 months following the initial infection. No specific causes or risk factors have been determined for long COVID-19 syndrome. A variety of symptoms can be seen. This includes:
- Trouble breathing
- Chest pain
- Heart palpitations
- Muscle pain
- Trouble concentrating
Your daughter has had several of these symptoms. A primary concern would be to make sure an effective and comprehensive asthma action plan is in place. Her asthma control should be fully assessed.
Your daughter would benefit from a consultation with an allergy and asthma specialist, in addition to a pulmonologist. They would help in the overall workup and management of her ongoing symptoms. Other conditions, besides COVID-19, that could be causing her symptoms should be considered and ruled out in her workup. Fortunately, most children with long COVID-19 improve within a few months. They then get back to their baseline.
