Hi my son is 5 and has been treated for asthma since he was 3. His asthma isn't wheezy but it involves a very bad cough,usually at night time,sometimes sick from the coughing,the cough can last anything from 3 to 8 weeks. He has these coughs on average 3-4 times a year. He has a blue inhaler which I give him 4 hourly when he is bad,he does have a brown inhaler but he can't stand the taste of it and it almost makes him sick so very unsuccessful attempts to give it to him, he also takes montelukast of a night time. Just wondering if there are any tips for trying to calm this cough when there are flare ups? I've got rid of all of his cuddly toys as I know they attract dust, I tried steam,we also have a humidifier, i also give antihistamine. sometimes one or all things tried take the edge off but he's still bad,especially at night. Thanks in advance
