Hi, I hope someone can help me as the doctors seem to be a bit hit and miss on this one!!
My daughter is 6 and for as long as I can remember has had a 'cough'. Usually if she is running around outside in the cold and comes inside she will cough and be sick. She has had a few 'chest infections' recently (so the doctor said). Now today her dad took her to the doctors as her cough was really bad and before when she went the other doctor said that she might have asthma. Anyway, she has come home with a ventolin evohaler 100 micrograms (if that make sense). What I would like to ask is does anyone else 'think' that their child has asthma?? Apparently there is no test for it?? Which I think is a bit odd! Are there any side effects of this thing she is puffing and is it true that you can grow out of asthma when youre older??
They also said that she has ecezama (sp) as she has red dry patches on her hands and arms. bless, my poor little girl! Is there anything that I can do to help?? Ive herd about these bed sheets and laminating floors etc to help with dust.
Oh were to start, its all so new and overwhelming!! Id really appreciate some advise please.
