IGE level = 37
4.5 year old son was told 2 years ago allergy induced asthma...  cant find a trigger, did allergy panel test with scratch pad on his back, all came back negative,  his coughing is random, sometimes when he comes in from playing, sometimes when he just wakes up..  most colds we end up in ER with his oxygen around 87-90 or so.. improves with steroid, and breathing treatments.   used to be on just XOPENEX we were using it as a rescuer almost daily breathing treatment at home, now were on flow vent has mild steroid,  as preventative so we dont end up with these emergency situations.  he is doing much better.  lung dr specialist did ct scan to view nasal area,  and combined with blood test results of IGE=37, allergy test is negative at the time, we understand the panel was very small and still can have allergies, and enlarged adnoid,  he is leaning towards sinal issues, not asthma...  opinions?

my niece had her adenoids removed and it has made a big difference; not using the inhaler as much.  she needs to be tested for allergies tho by a good allergies/immunologist but she's afraid of needles.

try taking him to an allergist who is also an immunologist; they can treat the asthma (if it exists) along with allergies and/or sinus issues.
