That is great that you guys are doing so well. I hope it continues through the winter. That may mean you found the right program for him.

my son is doing ok...normally his main triggers are pollen (Spring time) but lately he has had flare ups doing physical activity and then also when the temps have been under 20 degrees.

I don't know if the cold is a normal trigger, and maybe because it is cooler that is why he is acting up during activities.

Sometimes the cold weather hitting the lungs can lead to triggers especially if its a new occurrence. Let us know if you see the dr and what they say.

we have seen improvements since nylas pulmo doc started her on prevacid for reflux. i didnt think at first that it would make much of a difference, but it really has. it has been about a year now that she has been back on it, and she does better. her pulmo told us that she could be aspirating a little refluxed fluid, and that is terrible for her already fragile lungs. we are still using 3 different meds daily just for her asthma, but not having as many flair ups.

That is good you aren't having as many flare ups. Sorry to hear you are having to give her so many medicines. That is never fun.

I hope he is able to stay off the steroids. That will be a true blessing.

Still steroid free.. I was fearing it was effecting his growth.. He's such a little guy.. 10th for height and 10th for weight.

So far, we are in the green zone.. I'm kinda worried about Spring and Summer though.. I think he may get seasonal allergies.. They wouldn't diagnose him with it last year because he was so young. But that's when his asthma really picked up.. I'm crossing my fingers he doesn't have environmental induced asthma.

A.J also had testing for allergies via blood. He's high with Soy,Peanuts,Egg Whites, and Cat.. Moderate for Dog and low for milk.. This is why I have a feeling it may be seasonal.. They didn't check for grass,etc.. Since he's so young.. But if his asthma kicks up again, I'll have to get him tested for those items too..

I have allergy induced asthma that flared up when I was in CA in the fall when the weather changed cooler. I hope your son doesn't have that. It isn't fun. I am glad he is able to come of the steroids. I know my son's dr said he might only have to be on the singular in the winter if he doesn't have flare ups during the summer. So part of the year is better than all year.
