She had an asthma attack the other night and we had to rush her to the hospital. They gave her 5 days worth of Pedia Pred, but I have heard it has bad side-effects. Any other Mums dealing with Toddler Asthma. It's so scary, and I HATE hearing her suffer at night with the coughing and wheezing. She is still too young for a respitory exam and they don't want to do an xray either. Our Pediatrician who deals with respitory issues put her on an asthma plan of ventillin and flovent - but I just wanted some advice from others Mums who are in the same boat!
BTW - I vacuum and dust her area constantly to make sure there is no dust or mold. But we do live in a house that is almost 40 years old, so i'm not sure what could be behind the walls! I'm grasping here - but can't think of what else it could be!
