I am glad I found this place and hope to meet others that understand how hard asthma can really be. My 6 year old Katie was diagnosed with chronic brittle asthma 3 years ago. Katie first started having symptoms of asthma when she was 11 months old when she had her first lot of pneumonia. then things seemed to start getting better for a short time and we thought it was just one of them things that little ones get with there teeth and that kind of stuff. then when she was 3 she started having food allergies at first these was just rashes more like intolerance's then true allergies but then at 4 she had her first massive brittle asthma attack where we nearly lost her. we then spent 12 months of hell in and out of hospital every couple of weeks.
since spending so long trying to get her medications right she is currently on seretide ventolin and 5mg Montelukast. she is doing a lot better these days but still goes into hospital every few months. she is now 6 1/2 years old.
