For croup, bad allergy reaction works wonders.

I think the dr thinks my dd has asthma. She seems great after the first dose.

prednisolone is usually only used short term for kids/babies. My daughter has had it for bronchiolitis (Gp prescription) but then when I actually read about it, apparently it isn't really recommended and probably doesn't help lol.. and her bronchiolitis wasn't even bad.. she had croup once too and that might be what they gave her. It worked well for croup. There are other drugs that are better for childhood asthma and hayfever such an singulair. My son is on that and flixotide and it works very well.

Ds1 who has asthma and ds2 have both had on occasion. We usually give it with breakfast because it makes ds1 pretty nuts. For us it has been the difference between being able to sleep at night and being up all night with kid gasping for breath so I'm pretty comfortable with it. I discussed with my step mum who's a nurse practitioner and she seemed to think it was good in short doses.
They're usually reluctant to diagnose asthma after one incident. Has she had a few?

DD was prescribed this three times prior to and just after her asthma diagnosis. It worked great to stabilise her and reduce symptoms. I was hesitant about its repeated use, but looked into it further and decided the pros outweigh the cons). She has not needed it since as she is now taking a preventer medication daily (flixotide).
