Hi. My son is 6 and he has the usual winter asthma cough. I managed to keep his asthma under control in summer with daily piriton and montelukast at night time. He hasn't needed his inhaler for 6 months but now hes having it 3 or 4 times daily (through spacer,10 squirts as advised by paediatrician) my question is, his cough is worse at night, it keeps him up and I'm scared he will go back to being sick while he's half asleep because of the constant coughing. This night time cough has affected him for 4 years! I have to have him in bed with me when he is like this so i can keep an eye on him and prop him up/give inhaler/water.I literally get no sleep (not easy as I have a stinking cold myself and i am 20 weeks pregnant) Is there anything I can try to stop the night time cough?
I've tried, vicks on feet, he has brown inhaler, window always open, humidifier, I have given him phenergan in the past for post nasal drip.
Thanks in advance. Just preparing myself for the night shift and I am dreading it.
