My Daughter(6) has been diaognosed with asthma after having a cough since last october, this cough is more like throat clearing does'nt happen when she is asleep, but does get worse in the car, or if she goes outside in the cold. She has been taking brown and blue inhalers 2 puffs 4 times a day for the last week and I can see no improvement. The doc can't hear any wheeziness, she does'nt complain about her chest. She only says that she has spit in her throat which makes her cough. I originally said to the doctor that I thought it was a habit but he said asthma straight away. If it was asthma then surely the medication would have had some effect by now would'nt it, does anyone have any ideas? She was really getting quite distressed in the car today becasue she was coughing so much.
