Hello hoping someone could shed some light my daughter Ava is 8 month and has always had a little wheeze from time to time since she was born. 2 months ago she was admitted to hospital with what they diagnosed as bronchiolitis. 4 weeks later she was admitted again and again they said it was acute bronchiolitis. She was on oxygen for 5 days, fed via a tube which was very distressing so she had to be put on a drip. Both these occasions she had cold symptoms which suggested a viral chest infection. She recovered from the last occasion but a week later I'm needing to use the inhaler they prescribed as she becomes wheezy, short of breath and draws in her chest quite deeply. I've taken her to the docs again this morning and have finally got a referal to a paeditrition (sp) after taking her 20 plus times. She hasn't any other symptoms and fine in herself. Sorry for long post but does anyone think this could be asthma? I have bought a dehumidifier but don't think it's beneficial to her??? Any advice or personal experiences wud be great xxx
