Hi all, I am new to this site. My little girl Ruby was diagnosed at 11 months after 3 hospital admissions with a viral wheeze. She originally only had breathing problems at the start of a cold it was like it would go straight to her chest everytime. She has over the last 6 months had a number of episodes where she wakes up in the night screaming. A wheeze then develops and i give her blue inhaler a number of times. She does not have a cold when this happens. Last week we had problems 3 nights in a row, but the wheeze was hardly there it was like a full on chesty cough that then went after a few sessions on her inhaler. On night 2 and 3 her top lip became quite swollen. This was after having to have 5 puffs 4 times within the same hour. Any ideas what this could be at all, it has been bugging me ever since. She is also extremely pale at the moment, has been for a couple of weeks with dark circles under her eyes, could this be related or maybe something else????? I am guessing that she has asthma now and not a viral wheeze.
Thank you in anticipation of any help offered, feel so alone with her breathing difficulties as it is.
