Looking for some advice. My son, Alfie is 34 months and suffering from a terrible night cough. He had difficulty breathing a couple of weeks ago and GP provided steroids for three days and also an inhaler. Was told he was too young for tests to confirm it was asthma but she was pretty sure it was. He is now coughing every night which is also triggering the wheezing! I have been trying to give him the inhaler but I am finding it very difficult to (1) get him to keep the mask on his face and (2) work out if any of the medicine is actually being breathed in by him! I am an asthma sufferer myself but am getting very distressed myself at feeling so useless in being able to help my son!!
If anyone has any tips or advice on how to handle this or how can I help his night coughs please let me know.
