My son has had an inhaler for about a year - but certainly doesn't need it all the time - I haven't really been told very much by the doctor. I don't know if it's a preventative thing that he should have all the time even if he doesn't need it or if it's just something for when he's wheezy.
He's in good health normally with no other health issues. But when he has a cold or chest infection, it goes straight to his chest and he's very wheezy and coughy.
I would love to know some tips for helping him sleep with the wheezing. Also should I be giving him his inhaler as a precautionary thing at set times during the day? I prop his bed up, and use vicks on his chest and back as he currently has a blocked nose which isn't helping, he is having paracetamol.
What about the windows? The heating isn't on at the moment, should he be sleeping with the window open a bit or closed? Is it better for him to have the heating on and be warmer or fresher with the window open and no heating?
Any help I would be really grateful for.
