Hi - my son is 3 and had a suspected asthma attack in march with 3 days in hospital. (my daughter who is 9 has asthma-separate post) He has not had a cold but has a chesty cough that does not go away. It seems to build up over time ( he always sounds like the end of a cold) he coughs a lot at night and is then sick and this week it has been 2/3 times a night but the sick is clear mucus (SORRY if too much info!!) He has been prescribed ventolin only since march which does work if you can get enough into him once he starts coughing. Could this be an asthma cough?? My daughter has always had a dry cough so I don't know if it can sound any different or if there may be something else going on or if I am worrying about nothing??? Can anything be done about the mucus?? Thanks again for any advice. Tina
