Any advice out there?

Hi, my daughter is 10yes old has been an eczema and asthma sufferer since birth. She is taking methotrexate for her skin and lots of meds for her asthma.

She has been admitted 3 times via 999 in the last 7weeks. She has had an X-ray, ct scan and this showed nothing that you wouldn't expect to see in an asthmatic.

She has brittle asthma.

The new idea we are currently facing is to do a bronchoscopy. Has anyone had this?? Also, a long term of steroids is in the pipeline which they want to start this week when we have decided if we want to go ahead.

My daughter has blood tests every 2wks to check her liver and kidney function because of the meds she currently takes and I'm not sure if she will be able to cope with steroids on top of all this.

Any advice would be gratefully received.

She is completely 100% fed up of all this and is starting to lie to me about how she is feeling because she doesn't want to go to hospital.

I'm starting to doubt myself when I think she is not alright.
