Hi! My daughter is almost 6years old and was just recently (in November) diagnosed with asthma. I feel like i am doing an ok job, but i am not completely sure that i am using her inhaler right. she uses a spacer, and it appears that she is getting all of the medicine...is that all that matters? she has had several mild attacks since just before she was diagnosed...her face turns red and if you listen really close you can hear her wheeze, but no flat out on the floor gasping for air attacks.
do you have any advice for a mother of a newly diagnosed child??
