Hi there all.
I am a Mum of two boys aged 7 years and an 8 month old. My seven year old was diagnosed with Asthma at the age of 3 and thankfully seems to have outgrown the majority of it.
However, my youngest is 8 months old and is having great problems. He was born in September and caught his first cold in November. He hasn't been well since. He was prescribed Atrovent Inhaler via an AeroChamber in November which relieved for a while his symptoms of wheeziness, breathlessness and a 'rattly' chest.
After many trips to the GP he was finally referred to a Paediatric Consultand last month who diagnosed asthma. He also included Serevet Inhaler to his treatment.
Over the last few weeks he has picked up another cold and for the last three nights we have been in and out of hospital for nebulising.
We are now using Ventolin and Atrovent 4 times a day.
His cough is much worse and he has a tendancy to vomit as a result.
All of this description is rather involved and graphic I know, but I was just wondering if it struck a cord with any members who may be able to share their experiences or advice.
I look forward to reading your posts.
