My daughter is 5 and was diagnosed with asthma at 2 years, although the symptoms had been there since she was 6 months old.
Her asthma has been slowly getting worse since July, 3 courses antibiotics, 30 days of prednisolone (3 seperate 10 day courses) which resulted in the most horrible oral thrush. She has been on 800mcg of becotide daily for the last 18 months, and salbutamol. But on Monday after another trip to the GP about her asthma we have came away with another 7 day course of prednisolone (4 tablets a day) and been told to up her becotide to 1200mcg daily (3 puffs of 200mcg, twice daily). That seems a high dose to me for such a small child, was just looking for anyone elses opinion please.
