Hi, I am new to these forums and it probably sounds like a really stupid question, but what constitutes an asthma attack? At what point do I need to call for help as some nights he is beside himself.
My son is nearly two and has recently been prescribed a salbutamol inhaler as he is wheezy. At night he coughs a lot and during the day is getting out of breath when eating and/or playing. When he was five weeks old he was admitted with bronchiolitis and was in for a week, he has had chesty problems ever since but worse recently. My husband and daughter are both asthmatic. Sorry to go on, hope someone can help.
