Just what are they? I'm treating him with all the usual inhalers but I am unclear as to what other three year old asthma suspects are displaying symptom wise. What have other parents seen in their toddlers?
He's well at the moment - just a cold, but the symptoms he has shown in the past are:
dry cough when running around
waking with a cough at night
panting - only one episode last summer when there was a general rise of asthma attacks in our area
pre treating him with inahlers he had a permanent cough and cold.
When he did have this panting episode, I didn't realise that this was an attack as he was running around and eating and I sent him to nursery - not relaising that he needed urgent treatment. So it would be good to know what to look for as there is never the wheezing that everyone talks about. For me, its difficult to know whether I am treating an asthmatic or a normal series of colds that all toddlers are prone to. I am happy to go along with the advice of the GPs and asthma nurses - especially as it works.
