Hi, my 4yo has very recently been diagnosed with asthma. He has an inhaler and ventolin syrup. He has been poorly approx every 2.5 weeks. He has now been wheezy/short of breath/tired for a week. His inhaler doesn't seem to be making any difference at the moment. He has had it 3 times today, and has now woken again very wheezy and coughing, but I'm sure it's too soon to give him any more... My question is, is this normal? Is this what asthma is like all the time? My gp hasn't given me much info at all! He has just said he may think about giving him a preventative soon. How bad would it be that I would think it's a bad attack? thanks
