Hi, I am Natalie (popping in from March 08PR) and I had a few questions about asthma. When is the earliest it's detected? Can a child develop it at any time?

Also, my dh is a smoker and although he never smokes in the apartment anymore, he will sometimes still smoke in the car. (Like maybe, once a week.) I know this isn't a lot, but could it still lead to ds developing asthma? I really have no idea about it, but I have thought about it from time to time. Thanks for your help!!

Many Dr's won't test for it until they are 3. However my son has had it since he was about 6 months old. The dr did all the same things just didn't actually note it as asthma. If that makes sense. I would say at this point 2 1/2 you would notice coughs that don't go away, wheezing, pneumonia (persistent) or bronchitis again persistent.
Jeremy used to get bronchitis 4 or more times a winter until we got him on asthma meds.
Yes smoking could cause problems in more ways than one. Even with smoking outside. It clings to your clothes and you bring it back in so if you pick up a child they will breath it in from your clothes. I would keep an eye on your son's breathing and see if he is having trouble. Especially when running or lots of activity.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my great siggie
