Melbourne: A new study has revealed that paracetamol use in children aged under 15 months can double their chances of getting asthma.Researchers at University of Otago Wellington conducted the study amongst 1400 children and found that by age six, 95 per cent of children were using paracetamol, significantly increasing the risk of asthma and wheeze.It found a dose-response affect, so the more regularly a child was using paracetamol the greater the risk appeared to be.
However, it was not a case of taking the medication once and immediately become more susceptible, he said."It`s clearly more subtle, you don`t take it and suddenly get wheezy. (But) the results at this stage are supportive of a role for paracetamol in asthma and allergic disease." ANI
