Cold meds in child. Over the counter cough and cold preparations are no longer FDA approved or recommended for children under the age of 2. Since your child is asthmatic, the best way to treat his cough is with his asthma and allergy medication regimen (including albuterol) and following up with his pediatrician if symptoms persist or worsen.

The day after being outside the middle of my back and shoulder blades feel inflamed, tight, short of breath. I'm on flonase, pulmicort, zyrtec (cetirizine).?

Asthma? Based on your meds I assume you suffer of allergy induced asthma. I would say that the symptoms you are presenting can happen during and acute asthma attack so since it does not say in your text how severe those symptoms are my recommendation would be to go to the ED ASAP for immediate evaluation and treatment.
