Hey all, am new to this site and need some advice as my GPs refuse to acknowledge the possibility of asthma and just prescribes yet more antibotics.
my son will be 8 months on the 16th, and since being 3 months old he had 3 courses of antibotics for a wheezy chest. he needed some more on friday but the GP wouldn't give him any as he only finished a course 2 weeks ago. he gave himm some nasal drops instead.
the wheezing gets a lot worse if he has been playing with his 17month old sister and gets excitied. he also has been coughing a lot more than usual.
i have asked both my health visitor and my GP if it could be asthma and they have both said yes, it does sound like asthma, but wont give him anything until he is 3!!! and it'll be antibotics until then, but what if there is something seriously wrong later in life and they antibotics do nothing, because he is so used to them??
my dad and mother in law both have asthma as well.
any help apperciated,
sorry for ant mistakes he's bouncing around on my lap
