Hi Shelly, my son (who's 14) started with seasonal asthma when he was 4. And there are a few years he showed absolutely no symptoms whatsoever but he IS more prone to throat/URI's like your son. My son doesn't understand either (about
the whole cleanliness factor thing) and he's older then yours! Maybe it's a guy thing?? I can't comment on the exercise thing because when my son runs in gym at school or with his friends, he starts coughing like crazy and has to use his inhaler. Is your son on an allergy meds in the fall and winter? Has your son been tested for allergies such as mold and mildew (which are high in the fall)?
