I would love any information regarding these toxins and how I can reduce our exposure!
I need help - I have a 2.5 year old daughter, light of my life, that had RSV at 7 months, pneumonia at 9 months, pneumonia again one year later, numerous bouts of coughing etc. She was just diagnosed with asthma (no familiy history) and is on prednisone for 5 days, pulmicort twice a day, albuterol for "emergencies", which we are in.
Her oxygen was as low as 82 last Friday (ER trip), then dropped again to 85 on Sunday (another ER trip) - I have a pulse oximeter at home.
I am just so freaked out right now and would love any insight. I would love to get her off of the steroids as well and her Dr. recommended Singulair to replace the Pulmicort. Has anyone else done this?
Thanks so much...
