My son is 22 weeks old, since 12 weeks whenever he gets a cold he gets a really bad cough, starts to wheeze badly first thing in morning and throughout the night. After a 10 week struggle dr has given a ventolin which i have used over the last week. I went back today as he was needing to use it during the day also. Dr is having a discussion with other drs about putting him on a steroid inhaler as they are concerned about his age. I am happy for him to start using a preventor inhaler as I see how much he suffers, surely this whole""you cant diagnose when they are young"" is a little old fashioned? 3 years it took me to get an inhaler for my eldest son, and as soon as it was issued the improvment was amazing. What are peoples thoughts on this?
I should also say in the last 12 weeks he has had 2 courses of antibiotics and 2 courses of steroids, surely if there is not improvement after all that then preventor is the way forward?
