My son's asthma attacks have increased since starting full time school and coming into contact with his allergies more often.
Does anyone else have similiar problems and what advice do you have?
Allergies to horses, cats, pollen, crop spores and house dust mites.
I am not new to asthma with 2 other asthmatic children, so no carpets in bedroom, hoovering with powerful hoover once, even twice a day, and general avoidance of triggers in the home as much as poss.
My son's first year at school has seen him have several emergency situations, numerous courses of oral steriods and a couple of hospital stays.At playschool his asthma was not good but was better than at full time school. They had flooring rather than carpets and a bigger classroom space. Interestingly, my son was very well the last 4 weeks of school hols this year, even though pollen was still high and crop spores season was nearing.
What I want to know is if anyone has asked their child's school for a statement of medical needs, or to have a asthma action plan specifically for their child's needs.
I know schools are very good at making sure staff know the asthmatic children and have my son's asthma attack action plan in several parts of the school, plus medication.
I wonder if anyone has asked their school to apply for grant to get a hepa filter hoover and/or a air purifier for the classroom for pollen season.
