Hi, new to this, but in need of some support.
Our 10 month old baby has had breathing problems for around 4 months. had various suggestions as to what it might be and has had antibiotics which don't help. he's worse at night but the wheeze is present during the day. I'm asthmatic and my husband has seasonal asthma - so the docs have said that Asthma is likely but they can't officially diaognose because of his young age. He's been really struggling this weekend, started with a slight cold, but got so bad with his cough and wheeze that we took him to A&E on Saturday night. the doctor confirmed it sounded like an asthma attack, but can't officially say it was. The doctor today has give us a steriod inhaler with a long list of side effects and told us it's up to us if we want to take the risks and give to him, but it should help.
We have an appointment at the children's clinic/hospital in a couple of weeks, which we're pinning all our hopes on. We just need to support for our son, it's such a worry.
Has anyone got any advice, hints, tips on how we can help him? Thanks
