I have a 5 year old who has Virus-induced Asthma as well. His DR's have insisted that he has Allergy related Asthma because he does have some allergies. I have been debating with many Dr's about this for years. He ONLY gets Asthma with a cold. I have my son currently on pulmicort 2x a day and Albuterol every 4 hours when he has a cold.These meds don't really seem to work very well. As soon as his cold turns to a cough His OX can get low. we wait and watch him closely to see if we have to go to the ER or will the albuterol last for more then 2 hours. We seem to get very close to having to go to the ER every time. We need another plan! What do u do?
