My son has a bad cold and it has once again flared his Asthma up, I think the brown inhaler stopped it getting too bad too quickly this time, but unfortunately wasn't enough to prevent an attack! Anyway, why is it almost every time we see a dr. with his or his brothers Asthma we come out with Antibiotics along with the oral steroids? If you get admitted to the children's ward, they will not give antibiotics without a temperature, and he does not have a temperature, just as he/his brothers havn't on many other occasions that we have been given them. Does this keep happening to everyone else? I am giving him them just in case as I just want him better. I am not a Dr. but I am sure they are completely unnecessary and we all know it is not good to keep having them all the time.
