Hi, I'm new here due to my son recently being diagnosed with asthma. He also has a severe food allergy. My problem tonight is that he had a pretty bad cough, a slight temp and I'm not sure if he needs to be seen? As this is new to me I'm not sure when things are getting bad as I don't have any experience. His peak flow is normally 220, but for his height should be about 290. It doesn't ever get near this. At the moment he is sitting closer to 150. His inhalers have been increased but it's not making a difference? I do have a 3 day course of steroids here that he was prescribed before to take if he got worse which he didn't so I still have them. I'm unsure if I want to make the call to start giving him them though, would others get him checked tonight or sit it out till tomorrow? He hasn't ever had an 'attack' as such and is fairly happy in himself but tends to just get on with stuff and not let things stop him so hard to tell sometimes.
