My 13 yr old son was misdiagnosed with asthma when he was 1 and since then been prescribed so many different inhalers and asthma treatment when eventually his consultant diagnosed PBB and reflux. Since a flare up of what i refer to as that awful wet cough he has been on and off coamoxiclav since June and then put on azithromycin for the winter. However his cough is back for a week now and its not responding to the usual coamoxiclav. He is better in himself but cough is horrendous. Physio with aerochamber helps a little. Turbutaline seems to make it worse. How do i know whats happening because his sputum test was negative although did have a fair bit of saliva in it. Am worried bronchiectasis is setting in. Back to hospital this week. Desperate for Any advice
