So my daughter is 3 and a half she was diagnosed around 4months so i should know what im doing! I was just wondering when you feel you/your child needs to see a doctor. Im only asking as i think im a little OTT i still check on her regularly througbout the night and even count her breaths per minute! When Erin was about 5/6 months i took her to a&e because she was breathing fast and she needed to stay in for IV and then it happened again the following year. Luckily those are the only hospital admissions so far shes needed courses of anti biotics and other medication a long the way. Since her being admitted other than scaring me seeing her being poked and prodded it also is really hard finacially as my other half doesnt get paid so if im with Erin he needs to be at home with our son. So i feel like im constantly panicking if i hear her cough or sneeze. Shes had a good summer but of course the winters kicking in now. At the beginning of october i took her to the gp as i noticed she was more wheezy and had more of a thick green snotty nose he prescribed her usual 2week course and shes been fine since but ive noticed last couple if days shes sounding wheezy in the mornings, a little snotty not majorly and tonight ive heard her cough a couple if times. Shes fine within herself eating playing no temp. I just wondered if any of yourselves or children had warning signs that you felt you may need medication do you see how it goes and try fight it or go straight to your gp? I try to avoid going out in the cold as she sounds wheezy after school run but her dad works so i have to take her when i take my son to school. Sorry for long waffling post! Thanks
