My daughter Holly is 18 months and has been on asthma medication now since she was 8 months old. She has 4 puffs of atrovent a day, 2 puffs of Flixotide and then Salbutamol whenever she needs it. We've come a long way since she was first diagnosed but over the last few months Holly has been getting very breathless. She seems so out of breath that she can't eat and stops making any noise (by this I mean she stops chatting and usually she is very talkative!). She isn't wheezy at all and I'm not sure what we should do when she gets like this. What is difficult is that we haven't had a doctor see her when she is doing it and it's very difficult to explain so it's hard to get any advice.
I was just wondering whether anyone else has experienced anything like this?
