My 4 year old has asthma. He is on clenil modulite every day to stop his nighttime cough and has his ventoline when needed.
He started on clenil in March and its been working perfectly. We need to up his dose when he gets a cold but other than that he is fine and rarely needs ventoline.
He started school in september and all was fne. Now the cold weather has set in and they must go out to play morning, lunchtime and afternoon even in the freezing weather he is struggling more. He is fine at home but as soon as gets to playground and runs around he has a coughing fit. On Friday he was out all lunchtime it was 2 degrees but felt a lot colder as it was very windy he said he struggled.
Does anyone else have young children that struggle in the playground in the cold weather and how do you manage it. Has the school ever agreed to keep them in if its below zero? I know most schools including ours say there is no reason for a child to stay in. They must go out in all weather.
