Hi All, New to the forum. My nearly 6 year old son suffers from Asthma.... From 2 1/2 this was simply put down to a viral wheeze!! But...After various episodes, OOH/hospital visits and ambulance for attack last year he was finally given a preventer inhaler and continue with his ventolin as required.
Summer is trouble free but as usually September brings on the wheeze. We have had s few one of short steroid bursts for 3 days which does the trick.
All this time we have never been advised of having an action plan. I asked after a GP visit today.... He has had a troublesome weekend and now on another 3 day steroid supply. I asked today if we were able to have s spare supply for home should future events arise.... Hoping this would avoid struggles and time off school!!! But told No he needs to be seen each time..... We all no the hassle of getting through 111 weekend scenarios!! 😤😤.
Our Dr's have always been faultless but felt today a little bemused by my response to asking!
