Wondering if anyone had experience with Asthma treatment/diagnosis in a toddler? DD is 19 months. She has had 3 episodes of "viral onset asthma" since November, 1 requiring a 24 hour stay in hospital for oxygen.
The Paed who saw her in hospital said just use salbutamol in the spacer every 2-4 hours when she is unwell, as she doesn't need any treatment at all when she is well.
So I was up giving it to her every 2 hours on Saturday night & thinking there must be a better option?
Anyone had their toddler started on a preventer or long acting reliever under the age of 2? If so how did you get a diagnosis? GP or Paed?
She saw the after hours doc on sun & we're off to the GP on Thursday but would like an action plan on whether i insist on a referral or push the GP for treatment options. Thanks!
