my son will be 3 in aprill and was finally diagnosed with asthma 6 months ago after being admitted to hospital on 3 seperate occasions with in 3-4 wks of each other.
since then he has been prescribed a preventer inhaler and takes it 2x a day 2puffs in the morning and 2 in the night, recently he has been really poorly with what they have said is a chest infection whicj has made his asthma dreadfull he has been given another 2 courses of oral steroids.
so in the last 8months he has had 5 3day courses of oral steroids im worrid as to the longterm side effects. was just wondering if any other parents of a young child has had this problem and how are your children coping with the ammount of steroids ??
many thanx xxxxxx
