I am very new to this forum and asthma. I only heard about asthma until my 2 year old daughter was diagnosed with it. Doctor said it when she was only 18 months. She has symptoms including respiratory infections, coughing, wheezing, snotting and etc from 5 months. She started to use a nebulizer when she was at six months. Fortunately, she was never admitted to a hospital for asthma but we went to the hospital many times in emergency. We got a very good doctor who worked hard with us to make the disease under control. I did so many researches and I have so many doubts about this disease. My daughter was using medications which include chromalyn sodium, clartin, and a nebulizer. She also had albuterol when she is in emergency. After she reached two, doctor prescribed new set of drugs which include pulmicort and singulair. With these, we can use Pulmicort through a nebulizer and in the form of a dry powder inhaler. The doctor prescribed my daughter the dry powder one as an experiment. Can we use it in mask? I just want to use to avoid the problems of nebulizer. It is very difficult for my little child and she uses it after screaming, kicking, fighting for the first ten minutes. I asked the same question to the two doctors and to one respiratory specialist. Actually, I am waiting for their response. I need your opinion and suggestion in this matter. As a mother of an asthmatic kid, I am afraid of the over-medication to my girl's body. But there is nothing to do on that part.
