My son is 8 and was diagnosed with asthma aged 2. It's usually caused by allergic reaction typically pollen in summer. He is on purple inhalor 2puffs 2 a day, singular tablets and antihistimines. Tonight u got winter clothes out of attic and he complained of bein short of breath, gav him piriton, and started blue inhalor regularly. He is stil complaining of bein short of breath and sounds short of breath but not struggling for breath and chatting happily his chest is relaxed. My husband thinks I am over reacting and maybe I am but saw asthma nurse last wk and as he has steriods twice this yr she said we should be careful. Is this an asthma attack ???
