Should we start ventolin nebulization during streptococcal tonsillitis and cough (if wheezing starts) for a child around 4?

No. Ventoline has no effect on the tonsils nor the swelling in that area. It may cause increased heart rate and other unpleasant side effects. If the child has reactive airway disease and gets ventoline as part of his treatment, then he should follow treatment plan outlined by his doctor for acute exacerbations of his symptoms.

Also a doctor recommended inhaled corticosteroid may prove useful as well. Read more...
