My 8 year old daughter started on inhalers in January this year after a long and drawn out chest infection over winter. She has been to see a specialist at Manchester Children's Hospital who advised for her to take 1 dose of Co-Amoxiclav 250/62 per day. She has now had a chest infection for the past 2 weeks and been on antibiotics 3 dose per day. As soon as antibiotics stop her lungs become infected again. Our GP has now put her on a green inhaler to go along side the brown one. She has also been on steriod tablets - 3 day course. I just can't seem to get any concrete answers as to what is exactly wrong with her. I know coughing can be a sign of being asthmatic but would it also create mucas and make her lungs infected or could she had have something else. Any feedback or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
