Hi everyone I've posted on here often before and am thankful for all of your advice. My daughter is 6 and has been on atrovent inhaler 20mg for the last 3-4 months.Each time she had it she complained of burning and itching in her throat immediatley after.She usually has a stay in hospital every 2 -3 weeks due to brittle asthma and the last few times she has been admitted and we've gone straight to ITU.They always start treatment straight away and its usually atrovent nebs with salbutamol closely followed by iv amino.Anyway the last couple of times Chloe has started having fits almost immediatley after atrovent has been administered and this has always been pushed aside as medics thought it was caused because her sats are really low.This week Chloe has been in hospital and it happend again only she went into anaphylactic shock as soon as atrovent nebs were given .When we moved onto ward on Wednesday and Chloe was more stable they gave her 4puffs of atrovent and then took some blood. results came back as really high Ige level 678. so we were told to discontinue. Does anyone know what atrovent contains that Chloe could be allergic to ? The doctor we seen wasn't too clued up and we don't have an appointment at Great Ormond Street until April 13th when Chloe is going to start sub cut. Thanks for reading this Nikki xxxx
