Hi, I'm new to this but I'm just at home with my 6 year old son seeking advice.
Wednesday after school I noticed his chest was very tight and he was wheezing a lot. I straight away got him to rest while giving him his inhaler. He was coughing and generally not improving much. I took him to A&E and they decided to keep him in as he jus continued to worsen. They released him yesterday afternoon with medication(oral steroids,liquid form) and said to give him his inhaler every 4 hours (4 puffs).
1st of all this morning he was coughing terribly and wheezing a lot! I listened to his chest and it was slightly crackly. I've rested with him all day, gave him everything hospital told me to but he's still wheezing and his neck going in and out and stomach working hard.
Suppose I'm just asking, should he not have improved a lot more by now or is this normal?
He's had asthma attacks before and never taken this long to recover?
