My daughter is 2 years and 3 months old. We have ALWAYS had trouble with her breathing, when she was 6 weeks old we had an ambulance out for subcostal retractions and wheezing. From about the age of 4/5 months she has always coughed, worse over night but even during the day. After she turned one (November 2016) we had 3 severe chest infections on the bounce which ended in her being given a blue inhaler by the walk-in centre (because despite multiple visits to my gp he insisted she was healthy). In June/July time last year she was given a brown (clenil 50) and blue (ventolin) inhaler. Initially this was great we had maybe 6 weeks of her sleeping soundly. Mid-August the coughing returned and it hasn't stopped. She has had her clenil up to 100mg 4 times a day, and has just recently been started on Montelukast 4mg at night. She is still coughing non-stop, she is exhausted and miserable. I don't know what to do for her but I am getting to the point of wanting to sleep in her room so I can be there if something happens. We have had a referral to a consultant but the appointment isn't until 30th of April. Most of the time she is coughing so badly her lips go blue. I'm at a loss as my GP will do nothing when we went to get the montelukast he didn't even listen to her chest. I have a 2 year old little girl who is fighting so hard to be happy and is so tired, and I'm so worried about her. Any advice or tricks to help ease her overnight would be greatly appreciated at this point.
