This is my first message as I am new to this forum. My two year old has viral-induced asthma. At the moment she is poorly and so as well as her usual reliever and preventor inhalers, together with montelukast, she is on day five of prednisolone and anti-biotics for a chest infection. However, we cannot help her to stop her dreadfully distressing asthma cough. She is on six puffs of salbutamol four hourly. Does anyone have any other ideas? She is so sleep deprived. Many thanks.
