Dear Worried Mum
She will probably still need to see a pediatrician being younger than 12. If her lungfunction test was normal it is unlikely that she will need cortisone. She is however old enough to use inhaled cortisone which only works locally in the lungs and has very little effect on the rest of the body. She probably needs a good antihistamine too. If they find that she does not have asthma, lung function and lung x/ray both normal, just consider underlying anxiety as an alternative cause.
