Hi I am new here but not new to asthma. I have 4 boys, 9, 7, 4 and 20 months, 3 of whom have asthma.
My 4 year old suffers the worst and has had numerous admissions for asthma and chest infections, they never seem sure which it is. He is on seritide 125 2 puffs morning and night, monteluecast granules and often has the steroid tablets.
He spent christmas in hospital again with viral pneumonia/asthma and is now on steroids for a week. In June he had Kawazaki disease which is treated with intravenous immunoglobulin which has given us the best 6 months with his asthma yet, but now the effects of this have worn off and I feel we are back to being uncontrolled.
I am so worried about his lungs being permenently damaged with all the infections, can this happen? Anyway, that was an introduction because I intend on posting on these boards now.
