my son (now 7) has been moved from clenil to seretide as asthma nurse said he is a brittle asthmatic. 90% of the time he has a major cough and can go from controlled to not as quick as a light switch being turned on/off.
at the moment everything is under control (yay!!!), he's on seretide, ventolin and singulair. just wondering if there is anything i need to do with regards the brittle asthma or do i continue doing what we doing as its ok? nurse did say i can make an appointment if i have any concerns about his asthma, but i'm not concerned about him at the moment - just looking for info.
we have a full action plan at home and at school. at home we have a special bag (has sons name, dob and ""asthma bag"" with pic of inhalers/peak flow etc on it - i had it printed) by the door with all medicine boxes, action plan, peak flow charts etc so it can be grabbed on route out if we need to.
anyone with experience of a brittle asthmatic - i would be gratful of ideas etc.
