My son has cough variant asthma
when he gets a cold, it usually progresses. Otherwise he does well
once it starts, he takes albuterol (wit flovent). ?
Very common: Cough is a very common sign of asthma and colds (viral infection) are the most common trigger for kids under 2 yr. To prevent progression, I have found starting/increasing the Flovent early in the cold may prevent progression. This should be outlined on the written asthma action plan. Consider using a peak flow meter to monitor and use albuterol for symptom relief. Hope to avoid prednisone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Common medications: School-aged children with cough-variant asthma, exercise-induced asthma, or regular asthma can use steroid inhalers (such as flovent) to reduce swelling, mucus, and "sensitivity" in the airways. Bronchodilators such as albuterol (ventolin, proventil) or xopenex (levalbuterol) enlarge the diameter of the airways to help air flow and mucus come out of the lungs.

Bad asthma..Why only thing help me breath is ventolin...I tried singular and servent and flovent for many months without good results?
Don't over use it: Overuse of albuterol/bronchodilators is risky for worsening asthma, and death.

Find a good asthma specialist, talk, rule out complicating factors (smoking, obesity, sinus, GERD, etc), monitor (PFT's), be compliant - so much better therapy now. See allergist or pulmonologist. ...Read more
