Hi my daughter has been unwell with tonsillitis and then a cold which has affected her asthma. She had 2 days of awful constant coughing and 3 hourly ventolin and then the coughing settled down but she said she had a tight chest. As last time we left it a bit late and she ended up on 10 days pred I thought I would take her to the docs earlier rather than later but her chest was ok (weds)
She is still saying her chest is tight with no improvement in that or her peak flow ( still about 60% of normal) What do I do???? She says she is no worse and doesn't seem to be but she has already had lots of time of school and I know at the moment she is still not well enough to go back.
Does anyone else have experience of this?? She used to have predictable(ish) symptoms but now I never know where we are!! I DON'T have asthma and I am worried about over-riding what she says and making her go back to school. She is only 9.
Any help would be appreciated.Thanks.
