Hi, I just wanted to ask what type of spacers your kids are using? We are living in America and my daughter who is 5 was given a smallish tube where she has to take one deep breath and then keep her mouth closed for ten seconds, she found it really hard to do one good breath and so I was giving her all her meds with her nebuliser instead. Then I gave her my old spacer (from England) to use which is bigger and has a different valve so you breathe in and out for 5 or 6 breaths which is so much easier.
She is getting much better at taking her meds thankfully as she has to take her brown inhaler daily now. As well as some cold viruses setting off her asthma she has exercise induced asthma which the dr told me was unusual in such a young child and didn't normally develop until they were older. Does anyone else have a young child with this?
