    So we went off to our normal GP today who was very sensible.
    He said asthma was very hard to diagnose in under 3's, but common sense says after a number of hospital visits to start some preventative treatment. DD now has an asthma action plan: flixotide Jnr to be started at first sign of a cold & continued until symptom free (2-3 weeks), redipred to be given if needed, plus ventolin as needed. See Dr/hospital asap if needing ventolin more than 3hourly.
    He wants to review her if/when we need to start the flixotide & it may need to be used every day through winter depending on how she goes with viruses/exacerbations.
    We also have a referral to the Paed.
    I'm happy with this plan at the moment. Will keep in mind about the respiratory specialist if this plan doesn't work.
    Thank you for your advice and stories!

    My daughter was the same age when she was diagnosed. She's now 16 and asthma still attacks once in a while. My brother, 38 years old, and my sister-in-law, 37 years still have asthma attack at times. I guess it runs in the blood!

    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!
    Sister and i were both diagnosed at 18 months and medicated then and still are. Mine.is not as bad as my sisters thankfully. Dd was diagnosed about 16 months during issues with 4 months of.a.constant chest infection last yr, she is wheezy with colds so i get ventolin in asap at beginning of colds but it is so hard with a 1 yr old.
