Hello I need some advice on what to do next.
My son will be four next month and has been diagnosed with asthma for 2 years.
He currently takes 4 puffs of the Brown pump evey morning and night, he also has the Blue pump which he takes if hes having difficulty breathing or before he plays sport.
I am typing this after only coming out of hospital with him after he was admited with breathing problems, Which all started from a runny nose.
This tends to happen everytime he gets a cold, we take him to the doctors they give him the pink steriods and send us on our way.
But this time we took him to A&E and they admited him because his oxygen levels were low and he needed to be on oxygen. They give him 6 pink steriods and was having 10 puffs of blue pumps every 2 hours which went down to 6 puffs, 4 puffs, 2 puffs, until they sent us home 2 days later.
As I said this happens very offten but I want to know is there other medication he could be on that would help prevent this from happening?
Is there a specialist / Consultant we can ask to see? If so what questions should we ask?
Is there anything extra that we could be doing to prevent this?
