My two year old has been given an inhaler with a spacer after a trip to A+E with wheezing, gasping shortness of breath and a terrible cough. The doctor was not happy to say it was definitely asthma but we have an inhaler to use over the next week. Neither in hospital or at home have we had any success! She eventually had a nebuliser wafted under her nose in hospital. I have tried everything from softly softly, to bribery, to pinning her down and i just can't see how it is possible to keep it on her face. She will happily give teddy medecine and practice without the inhaler on but simply holds her breath and fights me when i try. Any ideas?
