I just had my daughter in for her 1 year check-up, and I mentioned to my doctor that I didn't want her to have her shots, because she still had a bad cough. He then listened to her lungs and suggested that she might have asthma.
He prescribed Flovent for twice daily, and salbutamol sulfate for when she's just coughing and wheezing really bad.
I haven't noticed her wheezing, but she had a really gurgly cough and I decided to try giving the puffer to her,and with-in minutes her cough was gone!
My main question is....Because the puffer has/is working, does this actually confirm that she has asthma?
I have been keeping her bedroom VERY clean, but the rest of the house is SERIOUSLY lacking. ( I have twin 4 year-olds as well)
What are the things that I absolutely HAVE to do to help prevent any attacks? As far as I know, she hasn't ever had an attack, but I can't say for sure.
Should I have a humidifier in her room?
