Hi my daughter is 6 and has what they describe as brittle asthma.She is admitted to hospital every 4-6 weeks and usually requires a few days in ITU then followed by a week on the normal ward before coming home.Just recently the build up to an attack has been much worse being more lengthy and Chloe getting more distressed, she always complains of feeling sick ( possibly from all the coughing and her tummy muscles working harder), she also has a really itchy neck and chin (does anyone else experience this ? )which aggravates her even more and then usual symptoms of wheezing and coughing.We have recently been refered to Great Ormond Street and the drs have been talking about Sub cuts and infusion pumps does anyone know what these involve.We are going to GOS in a few weeks to discuss all these but any information would be greatly appreciated. Our own hospital are not very helpful at all I've got more information from people on here . Thanks Nikki xx
