Hi there. My 5 yr old Daughter was diagnosed with Asthma last week and i'm not completely sure that its the correct diagnosis.
We all had a very snotty head cold in October of last year and everyone seemed to recover except my daughter (she's normally superfit and never suffers with anything).The cough was persistant and her temperature hovered about 1c above her 'normal' ( her normal is 36.5) she also seemed tired and got red cheeked after any running around (she can normally run for ever and not break a sweat). We took her to the doctor twice over a 4 week period and eventually they gave her a blood test that showed she had a low white blood cell count and high protein blood count, which suggested she had a viral infection.
Now into February the cough and the slight fatigue is still with her so we returned to the doctor who diagnosed Asthma. Does this sound like Asthma?
