I was at the school today volunteering for the book fair. My youngest dd, the one we suspect has asthma, was in the gym playing, jumping, running around, etc. Prior to that, she had run over to give me a hug. When her class finished in the gym, they went back to their classroom. The teacher noticed that my daughter was wheezing while she was breathing. She told her that it was hard to breathe so she sent her to the nurse for her medication.

The nurse told me that she listened to her chest and her lungs sounded clear (but they gave her medication anyway).

Does this mean that this was not an asthma problem? The reason I ask is because we typically only see it while she is ill (and she's only just finished up with a cold, so I guess it's still possible it was from that). We haven't seen it yet during exercise.

It could just be residual from her being sick. I usually give Jeremy his meds for a day or two after he stops coughing and being sick just to make sure it doesn't sneak back up on us. I would just keep a log of what she was doing and when she got her meds so you can show the dr. That way they can see what causes the flare ups. Sounds like she might be on the mend though. That is good.

Thanks. Just to clarify, she is still taking her preventative inhaler twice a day. I usually keep doing it for a week or so after she's been sick, same reason as you.

It can span out to exercise triggers so I would also keep a log of what she was doing when she started showing symptoms just to eliminate that.
