My 5 year old son was recently diagnosed with asthma.
He was sleeping on the sofa last month when he started coughing and couldnt stop he started turning blue and was all limp. I managed to get him to breathe properly and sat and watched him all night. When I took him to the doctors he told me he had a cold! I then had to beg him to give me some sort of meds to see if he has asthma. Finally giving him Ventolin and Clenil?
Anyway, He was rather bad last night and we were up with him at least 8-9 times. He was ok this morning but I got a phonecall from the school and they couldnt stop him from coughing.
Went and collected him and he still keeps coughing and coughing.
Im new to asthma and I just want to know if it is ok to give him his ventolin over and over and over. is there a limit to how much he can have?
He is nearly making himself sick where he is coughing.
Am i reacting really slow should he be at the doctors?
Any advise would be really helpful thank you
