Hello, my name is Julie. I don't live in the UK but this is the only asthma forum I could find that looked active!
My 9 year old has asthma and was diagnosed at age 1. He is in the middle of a flare that we just cannot seem to get rid of! He is on his third course of prednisone now and we just had his medications changed around at the pulmonologist yesterday.
He has cough variant asthma, so his main symptom is a cough cough cough! The pulmonologist said that if his cough is not gone at the end of this next 7 day course of prednisone he wants to do some testing to see if there is anything else going on. What else could be going on????
Why isn't the prednisone making it go away? He is 75% better than he was 2 weeks ago, but it almost seems as if the coughing is coming back..........Does anyone have an input?
