Q.

Can my Ventolin inhaler be harmful for my son?

I gave my child 2 puffs of my Ventolin relief inhaler, as he had chest pains and became very subdued. After the puffs, he seemed much better after taking it. He had been running around outside in the cold weather. Did I do him any harm?

No harm done.  Side effects to Ventolin are rare and it doesn't seem to be a problem here.
