Hello, my now 8 mo old baby was diagnosed with Asthma at 3 months old. I'm having a bit of trouble with this diagnoses as there's no family history of asthma and she only coughs at night time. Her room is clean, it has hard wood floors, no toys of any kind in the crib, clean sheets every week if not more often, etc. I just don't understand 1. How she was diagnosed with asthma at such a young age 2. Other doctors don't understand it either and often ask if I'm absolutely sure she was diagnosed with it. 3. We've been to an allergist... They did a skin scratch test on "environmental" things found in the house and nothing came back positive on that test (granted there are several skin scratch test and something not yet test could be a trigger). She also attends day care four days per week and doesn't cough while there, at least that what her teachers say. So, I guess I'm wondering if any other mothers have had a child diagnosed with asthma at a young age like this or does anyone else have an idea of something else that could be causing this? (She was full term, I didn't smoke while prego and no one in the house smokes either) Any help or positive advice would be great!
