I'm new to this. My youngest daughter has had a persistent cough for about 4 weeks now. It started when we were on holiday and originally put it down to being away and being in a different environment. Unfortunately, the cough didn't improve. In fact it got worse, she has big coughing fits and has caused her to be sick a number of times.
I took her to the dr last week, they decided it was most likely asthma induced by hay fever. She has spent a week using just ventolin, the cough hasn't eased but the inhaler does help relax her after a coughing fit. Spoke to dr again today and she is adamant it is asthma and gas put her in clenil modulite, we are to try this for the next two weeks and then go back to see the asthma nurse.
Just looking for advice/support - is it normal for an asthma cough to cause you to be sick and is there anything else I can do to help her cope until the new inhaler kicks in?
Thanks for any advice
