I saw my sons consultant today we see him every 6 weeks (as Sidney is in hospital normally once a month with his asthma every time he gets a cold). I was told today that pred suppresses immune system for 6 months every time 3 days worth is given to him. So as he has had this roughly once a month since he was 10 months old (now 2 1/2) does this mean his immune system has not developed properly - therefore catching more colds therefore having more attacks therefore having more does of pred?!? Vicious circle? Am very confused and feel so so so helpless. Is there any one that knows anything about this. Also is there anyone that has tried alternative therapies ie Salt Pipe? x
