My daughter is 5, she had a stubborn cough and raised allergy makers in August this year. Our GP gave her a brown inhaler which made the cough go within 6 weeks, we agreed that we would stop the inhaler and see how she did. She then got a cold again in October, so we started the inhaler again and the cough went. About a month ago she started coughing on waking then she started with a slight sniffle so I started her on the inhaler again and it has helped to settle her cough down again. Silly Question: Does this mean she has asthma? The GP told me there is no real test at this age and the use of an inhaler is the main way of diagnosis. Thanks.
