Q.

Flu?

Hi, My daugther is 4 years old. She is asmatic [she is using Budeflam 100 Gentle Inhaler]. She have a running nose, blocked nose at night and in the mornings and when she sneeze it is a green mucus, now for about 3 weeks. She do not have a tempreture and do not look sick. I have tried Allergex syrup, Coryx [for children] and Dimetapp [for children]. Must I take her to the doctor for a check up?

Your daughter has had a bad cold lately and it is taking a long time to clear up. The main thing is to keep her nose clear now. Use a saline nasal spray such as Sterimar nasal spray twice daily. You do not need to give her any other medicine except that she must continue to use her Budeflam Gentlehaler regularly.
