asthma in children

I have a boy aged aged 2 .we have recently done immuno globin ige tests.he has ige of 344.

i have asked his paed what could be wrong with him he had he might be asthmatic.

he is always sick.i am tired of going to the paed everytime he coughs.everytime i go there he tells me its inflammation of the airways.we have tried antibotics but after a week or two the problem comes back.

he is going to creche.the is a physio who is checking the kids daily.sometimes she checks him she would say he does not have optimal airflow sometimes has less airflow and sometimes a good airflow.

he is currently taking zyrtec or allecet for alergies.his paed said we will do the other tests after the winter season.

He sounds as if he has asthma. If he is put on to the correct asthma medicine he will rapidly improve. Go back to your doctor and ask him to treat your child for asthma.
