Hi, My 19month old son was diagnosed a month ago as having asthma after numerous stays in hospital this year! I find i am starting to see when he is starting to struggle and give him his inhaler straight away, what i'm finding is training other people is not quite so easy!
Anyway my little boy is going to be put on a steriod inhaler mid sept-oct as he seems to be worse when he has a cold! My main concern is during the winter our main source of heating is via an open fire, there is no way around this, i just wondered if anyone had any advice? We had an open fire last year and it didn't seem to aggravate him although having said that our first asthma attack wasn't until march and i'm not sure the fire was lit then! Moving is out of the question! We also have night storage heaters in others rooms but tend to only have one on as they give off quite a dry heat, so any general advice on heating would be great.
