Asthma does not show up on an X Ray so that is not the way to diagnose asthma. If your daughter is able to sleep well and does not wake up coughing, is able to run normally,does not have actual asthma attacks and does not miss any school because of asthma,she can stop the Flixotide after the winter is over.
