I usually post in the fibro forum but seen your post and had to reply. I know what its like to have a young child with asthma only brought on by illness. My son developed asthma just before his 5th b-day. I know it isnt nearly as young as your child but man was it ever hard. Everytime my son gets a cold I start to feel a sense of dread. I LOVE sommer vacations because its the one long stretch of time I know he will be symptom free. Then school starts up again and we start the vicious circle all over again with cold and flu season etc. My son was in the small percentage that singulair actually caused an increase in respiritory infections. He was also on advair 500 for about 1 1/2 years. He currently takes flovent but soon will be going off that when summer gets here. Although winter is a very hard time for him, the good news is that he has improved. With each cold he gets the doc explained his immune system is learning to fight them off and hopefully his body will not go into ashthma overdrive with each one. Sorry I wasnt much help but wanted you to know your truely not alone!!
