Hi everyone. My 19 month old son has a SEVERE reaction after a runny nose and was early diagnosed with asthma, reactive respiratory functions. He was in the PICU for a few days, and it was the scariest thing on the planet for us.

He is now on a 2x inhaled steroid and nebs as needed through colds. We have a pulmologist and allergist lined up.

Any advice, info, etc.. greatly appreciated.

No advice here as I still feel like I know nothing even though 4 children and I have illness-induced asthma. I've studied and studied asthma, it's causes, it's treatments, what all it entails to be called asthma, preventions, preventatives, etc. I'm sure I know more than I think I do but I can't wait to get to this portion of my studies in school so I will know that I know it!

At the same time I've been using respiratory/lung supportive herbals and so far no one has had an asthma attack yet this season (usually we've already had several). I've also learned about using pure peppermint essential oil and sweet orange essential oils to help an attack. So far so good but we do have our inhalers with us as well just in case. BUT this isn't something I'd recommend unless you've done a lot of research and feel comfortable doing something other than allopathic treatments. I just wanted to let you know where I've come to after years and years of dealing with asthma. This is the first year we'll be employing herbal treatments before allopathic treatments. My kids that have illness-induced asthma are 20, nearly 17, 14, and 9 - so as you can see, we've been at this for awhile. The youngest had croup every year from 2-6 and we had to call 911 once when she was 2. Scary stuff to be sure.
