I'm new to asthma, only 1 auntie has it in the family. My 3 year old has been having issues since January & was hospitalised on 14th Feb & discharged as viral induced wheeze. Since then she has been on 6 lots of steroids, 3 lots of anti biotics & on the clenil & ventolin inhalers & montelukast granules.
She takes the clenil morning & night(2 puffs through chamber) then ventolin as & when needs it.
They don't do anything for her & is constantly chesty sounding when breathes. She sleeps perfect no issues there but does sound worse on exercise, I give her a few puffs off ventolin but again it makes no difference.
When she does sound at her worst & you ask is she sore anywhere she points to her throat. She does sound like full of phlegm like it's coming from throat area.
The doctors just seem to be happy to say it's probably asthma when I don't understand if it is why are the inhalers not doing what they are set out to do. We are due to see the paeditrition next week & just looking for some advice before we see him.
Has anyone else had the same/similar problems or suggestions on what could help.
I've changed washing powder/softner cut out dairy, we don't use aresols/candles etc
I really hope someone can help or give any advice
