Sometimes what the nebulizer doesn't do the prednisone will do. my kids have very bad asthma and it always starts off from a runny nose. keep your son in a cool area away from heat because heat triggers there asthma, dust is also a big factor in asthmatic children. even if you have to give him the nebulizer every 20 minutes till you see comfort do so because it will do no harm but opening up the airways. hope he gets better.

My baby is 19 months old. since 5 months, i am going to and from the doctor. he shows all the signs of asthma but has not been diagnosed yet. the pediatrician says it's not asthma, and now almost a month and still with cough. it relaxed and within one or two days it goes serious again. i don't know what to do. please help.

Try a different doctor, or get a referral for a specialist but definitely get a second opinion.

My 19week old baby boy has had a cough since he was born, he's seen various doctors, health visitors and one occasion took him to hospital. he's never had a temperature, and apart from being a sicky baby, is ok in himself. the doctor prescribed a ventolin inhaler last week as he said my baby could have asthma , but i don't think it's helped at all. his cough's getting more frequent. any ideas ? should i demand for him to be referred to a specialist?

Catherine, coughing after eating, sign of allergies yes. most likely the food he's eating. get a new pedi, get that child a allergy test. allergy

My daughter (at one year) seen 4 different doctors that said her chest was clear even after xrays. she was severely congested, had a bad dry cough, watery eyes, and post nasal drip. well, one month later, i took her to the er once again because she had all the same symptoms still that progressed execept this time she was constantly coughing and throwing up. she ate well and appeared to be just fine. she had ran high fevers for a month with the doctors telling me she was fine it was just a cold or virus. at the er 3 doctors told us her chest was clear once again. they told us to go get her xrays taken. after waiting in the er after my daughter constantly throwing up for 3 hours, the main doctor seen us and said she had walking pneumonia. i knew something wasn't right for a whole month and i'm glad that she didn't have to be hospitalized for it with walking pneumonia it takes a while before things get to the point where a child needs to be hospitalized (in our case, she had it for one month). she still had the cough weeks later and now it has possibly returned. make sure you keep looking for solutions and follow your gut if you truly believe that there is something wrong with your children.

You're absolutely right, it's sad that some doctors don't "see" anything wrong with the child no matter how many times you bring them in. always follow your gut when it comes to your children! momma knows best
