My daughter was diagnosed with asthma last month, she's only 22 months. We saw the asthma nurse last week who said if she gets a cold and it goes to her chest it's possible she may need a course of prednisolone (sp?)
She started with a cold afew days ago and today has been coughing constantly from 12.30pm, I gave her 2 puffs of the blue inhaler, she hasn't had to use it before, but it didn't do anything at all.
Now I'm not sure if this is just a normal cough, or she needs the medication to help her. Now because it's a weekend can't see her own gp. So really just wanted some advice incase I should be taking her to the out of hours gp.
