Hi my little girl has recently been admitted to hospital over night on a few occasions with symptoms like an asthma attack. I have well controlled asthma so luckily knew what to look out for.
However as asthma in toddlers is very hard to clearly Diagnose they are reluctant to do much. She has a blue inhaler and spacer which I give her when I think she needs it and when she has a cold.
When she has a cold as she does at the moment she hardly sleeps all night with the coughing and has a very loud wheeze in her chest with every breath. She is much worse at nights and nap time. I sit her up as much as possible, keep the windows open to circulate the air and change her bed clothes very regularly.
I just never know really if she needs to go to hospital or not, and think that the doctors think I am just an over protective mum. Has anyone got any advice?
