If you have concerns that your son isnt breathing properly I would make appointment to see your childs doctor or asthma nurse today. There are all sorts of triggers for asthma and not always colds etc.

good luck



see your gp

Hi there is your child waking up in the night coughing too?

He may need to go onto becotide 100 instead of 50 if that is not helping and fi his cough is in the night too aswell as first thing in the morning he may need to be put on singulair 1 tablet at night like my son.

I would take your child along to their gp or Astma nurse to discuss this as it must be very worrying for you and there are other treatments that will help i promise

I hope my advice is ok for you it is all i can suggest at this moment in time
