We are traveling with my asthmatic child. What if he still has an attack despite using an inhaler?

In brief: Asthma

Does your child only use albuterol? If your child is having that many asthma 'attacks' then your child should be on 'controller/preventative' medication such as inhaled steroid or singulair (montelukast).
Before you travel and if your child is needing to use albuterol more than 3 times a week, then you should see your doctor.
