Hi there. My eleven month old daughter unfortunately had bronchilistus at 11 weeks old and since then has been prone to coughing.
Three months ago she was given a ventolin inhaler. Two months ago a consultant confirmed her asthma. I was told that if her asthma got worse to go to the gp and get becotide.
Bascially i am posting today for some advice. At night and during the day she is struggling to catch her breath. She does not wease but is choking and struggling to catch her breath.
I took her to the out of hours doctor last night who think she has croop. So we did all the steam things etc but to no hope.
I am off to the dr's again later to discuss the use of the brown puffer, but just wonder if anyone else has a child diagnosed with asthma with no wease?
Also how do you know if someone so young is ACTUALLY taking enough of the puffer through the spacer as you cannot tell them to take a deep breath?
Many thanks, hope this all makes sense?!?!?!
