My 4 yo ds has asthma which is sometimes well controlled and sometimes not. this year his hayfever has been quite bad and his asthma flared up more than usual so he has started on singulair which I felt was working well, alongside his usual preventer. However his wheezy dry cough turned into a more chesty cough and he really hasn't been improving. He had a bad asthma attack last night and today he was diagnosed with pneumonia. I am really in stress town right now with all this ****e. He is now on prednisolone and antibiotics, as well as his singulair and flixotide. I just dont know what to do. I can't see his asthma specialist for two weeks, and I want to ask him whether the singulair may have caused the pneumonia or something, as he has NEVER had a chest infection.. but then again he was clearly already running a virus weeks ago so it could just be that.
ANYWAY. I don't suppose anyone knows anything about this stuff, or at least how I can make DS more comfortable.
