My 17month son was just released from the hospital and we are soon up to riley hospital to see a polminologist becase he ped. dr. thinks he has asthma. we have since been on 2x a day pulmicort & albuterol beathing treatment and he has been doing great! kock on wood. only been out of hospital for 4 weeks. i would ask about the pulmicort...
However the reason for him being admitted to hospital was due to the the breathing treatment of albuteral alone were not working he ended up have pnimonia (not sure how it's spelled).

My son was diagnosed with asthma at five months and we went through hell, with three trips in the ambulance and all of the dr. appointments. Finally after being on four or five different perscriptions and a year later they decided to take out his adnoids and since then he has done a complete 360. Now when he gets a cold he occasionally has some wheezing but nothing compared to before. It has been almost three years since he had that surgery and is doing great. Hope this helps.

my daughter was initially thought to have asthma... but then found that it was RSV... which causes severe breathing issues... ask your doctor about pulmicort which i used along with the albuterol and it worked a lot better... definitely consult your doctor again if your babe is still wheezing after treatments

Hi Gereen, Im a naturopath in Australia and i have seen a lot of success in reducing symptoms of children with asthma by eliminating all chemical expsure as much as possible - especially bed sheets (laundry detergents) and bath products. I refer my clients to shop direct from Melaleuca as these products are free from hazardous ingredients but are still effective and affordable. check it out www.melaleuca.com i can help you convert your home to get the toxins out and clear the air!
Good Luck with it all - would love to help out where i can
