it's me asking for more advice! My 3 yr old has been doing great for the past two months since starting singulair. Despite ear infection and allergies to 2 anti-biotics he's been fine asthma-wise. NO COUGHING AT-ALL. Then Friday we headed to stay at my in-laws who have 2 dogs. The first night he sneezed all night and then next day the runny nose and coughing started. We stayed two nights. We came home today and I have just put him to bed but his nose is still runny and he's now in bed coughing. I am very discouraged as we have literally had NO coughing for 2 months. We usually stay with my parents when we visit our families and they have a cat. EVERY time (without fail) we have stayed with them my son has started with the runny nose and coughing on the very first night. So NOW we have put 2 and 2 together and now wonder if he's allergic to cats and dogs (altho his asthma is also triggered by viruses- we don't have pets ourselves).
My question is.. if he IS allergic to them would the reaction stop as soon as we leave the house? Each time we have left my parents his symptoms usually continue for a few days. Is that normal? OR maybe we are wrong on this and it's not the dogs & cats. It just seems too coincidental for it not to be that.
Would be interested in your thoughts and experiences. Thank you.
