Hi, my son is 3 and was diagnosed with asthma when he was 18 months old. Up to now we have had no problems with him taking his reliever or preventer. Bur now we're really struggling, he sometimes refuses and it's impossible to hold him down to do it. His coughing is really bad at the moment as he has picked up a cold at pre-school. I've just had to try to physically restrain him to put the mask over his mouth which has left both him (and me) in tears. I've heard it's possible to get them to breath in enough when asleep but I can't see how this would work! Any advice would be great, I really am feeling like the worst mummy!
