My son 7 yrs suffers from asthma. His main trigger is cold weather. He has bad cold for a week which is making his cough worse. We have doubled his brown inhaler to 8 puffs a day for last 5 days. His cough is getting worse during the day and evening and the double dose has no improvement. He is not wheezy or breathless. He had an attack 5 wks ago, he was very wheezy with constant cough and had to take steroid tablets for the first time. We don't want to keep giving him steroid tablets.
Can someone please advice what I should do since the increased dose is not making any difference and also how long I need to give double dose for. I don't find my gp very helpful and our surgery don't have an asthma clinic.
Any help or advice would be appreciated.
