My 2.5year old son has finally been diagnosed with asthma even though it has been clear to me for almost a year. Only one doctor would agree it was asthma the rest were very reluctant to commit to anything other than wheezy bronchilitis.
He has been in hospital 3 times in the past month and his medication has now been changed to 3 puffs of clenil modulite twice per day and the montelukast granules since has last hospital discharge 9 days ago. I finished the reducing salbutamol dose Monday and since it was completed I have been having to give him 6-8 puffs up to 5 times per day even through the night.
I think I will end up taking him back to the doctor when we return from holiday but just feel really disappointed how ill he still seems.
Anyone else with small children with asthma would appreciate stories of your experiences.
