My 2 year old was diagnosed with asthma a year ago. GP was useless. Asthama Uk did advise to change but my son was given a brown inhaler when he had another trip to A&E.
He has been really well over 6 months so I thought he was ok.
He had croup a few weeks ago and was admitted to hospital overnight. I was a bit naive I thought you couldnt get croup again. Now he has developed a barking cough tonight.
Last time I went to the out of hours service he wrote a prescription and said get it at the nearest pharmacy at midnight. I said I only have enough taxi fare for the trip home. He said a taxi will take you there and wait and I said not for 5 pound it wont. so he said why have you come here then he needs this medicine. anyway he managed to find antibiotics as its in the hospital. But an hour later he needed to go to hospital again. Then after nebulisers,adrenaline etc the DR said he can go home. He said to me hes not asthmatic is he? (DR at that point hehad his notes in his hand) and I said Yes he is -then the DR does he normally make that noise I said no) He kept him in and it was lucky as in half an hour he was very ill.
