My son started daycare two weeks ago and my asthma almost instantly got bad. I assumed it was due to allergens (I am severely allergic to cats and dogs and those are my triggers 99% of the time) so I asked the owner if there are ever pets there or if any of the people cuddling our son have pets (I thought maybe the hair was rubbing off on him since he's only 9 months so they hold him a lot of the time).
She said no animals ever go there and the women in charge of him don't have pets. It is possible hair is getting on him from the other kids (from the mats etc). As a precaution we are now changing his clothes and bathing him right when he gets home.
He did also get sick right away (ah the joy of daycare) and I'm wondering if perhaps I caught the virus and it has mostly manifested as asthma. I've never had that before--usually I have other symptoms.
But I'm miserable, tight chested, can't get full breaths, yawning constantly, so I'm desperate to figure out the cause and try to fix it.
Just curious if anyone here has ever had a virus that manifested mostly as asthma.
Thanks so much in advance for any insight!
