My little man is having what is for him a good asthma spell at the moment - meaning he only needs his reliever once a day as the daytime cough isnt too bad but he does get breathless quickly and takes little breaks still. However he still struggles at night and has needed a night reliever at least once every night since june. Sometimes its only 2 puffs but he definitely cant go without or he is even more exhausted the next day or the cough gets worse and worse through the night.
His consultant has suggested giving 6-10 puffs of his reliever before bed so as to sort of head it off early. First night last night and he still needed a further ventolin all be it later in the night than he typically would. Fingers crossed it helps in the next few days.
Just wondered if anyone had some tips or anything we can do? Anyone else had a persistent night cough that just wont get lost?!
