My 4 year old has just been diagnosed with asthma. From a baby he has always suffered from chest infections, but until recently he has not had a asthma attack. The damp weather made him wheezy on Monday and coughing, which my doctor tells me is a asthma attack and prescribed him the blue inhaler, using 2 puff 4 times a day. After hours of persuading him to try it he has only let me use it on his face, he will only allow me to leave on for about 3 seconds after the pump is used. After two days of this use his coughing and wheezing is not getting any better, however it isn't getting any worse either. As I am totally new to asthma, and do don't yet fully understand the disease, I don't know if this method should be working or if the full 5-6 breaths is essential.
Any advice is appreciated.
