Hi im kate,
My son Zac has Asthma hes 8 he was diagnosed 2 years ago after a bad chest infection.
We have had so much trouble with his asthma since then, he uses his inhalers every day but it seems to get worse around this time of year! He has also been diagnosed with hayfever which we are keeping under control.
Last year was the worse it started off with a bad cough then he started coughing up phlem when he lied down at nite. This went on for weeks and 6 trips to the doctors with several different treatments of steriods and anti biotics and different reasons for the cough. But he kept getting worse Finally the doc sent him for an X-ray which revieled he had streaks on his lungs caused by a chest infection and a partial lung collapse! We then went to a consultant who told us Zac was just getting over pneumonia! I was shocked that it took 8 different docs to tell me that!!!
My main worry is its starting again he has a bad cough now and i dont know wat to do any help or suggestions would be a briliant help as the doc says his chest is clear
