I am at a loss as to why my 22 month old son is ALWAYS sick!!! It's literally every 21/2-3 weeks and he's sick again with a runny nose and HORRIBLE cough.I've been the his DR over and over and they keep telling me he has asthma. I then give him steroid after steroid. I can see the he could have asthma but what it making him sick in the first place that makes his asthma flare up??? Help! Has this happened to anyone before?

My son has ashma and he's ALWAYS getting sick. Is he getting the medication consistantly? Is he wheezing? If he's just sick sometimes you just need to wait it out. My son stays sick almost all winter.

If he's wheezing a lot though you need to keep taking him to the doctor. I've had my son in the emergency room two times before we started using his medication every day. If he's wheezing a lot keep pestering your doctor to try something else or give you more information.

I wish I could keep him from getting sick all the time too....
