Hi new to this website, just looking for a little more helpful advice when it comes to looking after my four-year old who has suffered with asthma for the past two years (at least). Everytime he gets a cold, or a bit of a sniffle he just coughs constantly. He started coughing again this morning and it has become worse over the course of the day. This happens every few weeks and he is missing a lot of school because he is not sleeping very well and is therefore shattered in the morning (in no fit state for school). There was a time when we went to regular clincs at the hospital but they discharged him. Everytime I take him to the doctors because he is coughing they listen to his chest and say that his chest is clear - if he is still coughing in 3 weeks bring him back! They say his asthma is being well-managed.
He was recently given some chewable tablets because the doctor thought he might be allergic to house dust - he took these for a month but they made no difference. A few weeks ago, when he had another cough my partner took him to the doctors and he was given some different tablets (not sure what they were) to take for 3 days.
Should I take him to the doctors again tomorrow as his reliever inhaler seems to have no impact? I dont know whether to keep going back to the doctors again and again. My son also currently has two puffs morning and night of a preventer inhaler.
Is my sons asthma being well-managed or should I be pressing for more to be done for him?
Thanks, would really appreciate your replies.
