Hi Parents ,
Need some help.
My daughter age 3.6yrs could not attend school due to frequently catching viral which resulted in her having wheezing , cold and cough .I consulted pediatric n he said that its viral related asthma and prescribed levolin inhaler.  It seems her immunity is low , hence more sensitive .I have seen after Nebulisation , my baby used to become hyper active with heat flushes and dry throat.

Since this has been happening frequently specially in range of June -Oct month, since past 2yrs. Inhaler and sometimes Duolin neb is what I have been using .  I took her for second consultation to a senior pediatrician . He has prescribed following medicines:
1. FloHale  125 inhaler  -1mnth
2.Montair LC kid tablet -1mnth
3. Kiddicare syrup - 3mnth
4.Immomod Syrup. -3mnth

Requesting if any one experienced such a difficult situation , please share  ..do these medications if started give strong side effects or is it completely able to cure  or just Preventive ..wherein the course of medication may need to be repeated .

Thankyou.

Would you be open to trying alternative medicine therapy ?  In that case , do try homeopathy . U need to find a good hemeopath who does allopathy and homeopathy as the child cannot simply be lifted off allopathy and just put on homeopathy.
My child has similar issues  for 1 1/2 years. Homeopathy is having a great effect and is doing much better now. Our doctor praxctises both forms of medicine ..so it worked for us.

Thank you rad1234 ,

Yes am open to trying  Homoeopathy or ayurveda . But since the current doc is allopathic,  am thinking to take hi advice if parallel can be followed as in your case.
Hoping our little ones come out of it soon completely .. :)

Hi hunkhushi

I am also facing same problem .my son is now 4 1/2 yr old. last 3 year he has facing wheezing problem.

Dr prescribed him  Seroflow 50 , montair LC kit , Nasonex spray for daily use.

& if cold -cough is there we used  Asthelin inhaler .doctor said don't use nebulizer b'cause it is not much effective.

& Inhaler is the only solution. We used inhaler from last 3 years but t it can not shows 100% result. every year he gone through this wheezing problem, fever.

I have not used homeopathy but it take long time..

Just now I heard about salt therapy .which is helpful in asthma & respiratory infections.

Anybody know about it ?

please share your views.

Thanks

But not much effective .

 Hi Deeps2611 ,

Its been 4 months since the time I had started the medications mentioned by my doc (same when this was posted by be ) .
What I can say is that these medicines are proving effective  as they are preventive medicines.
But guess you can ask your doc about that Kidicare -it is vitamin syrup and Immumod is made up of grape juice (to improve immunity). Depends on the doctor's practice type.

But Flohale inhaler  (which is a Fluticasone steriod to basically reduce the inflamaton of the lungs due to allergy which causes wheezing , asthama)

In case of wheeze still occurs , i have to give her Levolin inhaler puff as SOS basis (which is Salbutamol , it is to relax the breathing passage in lungs). Previously she used to get extreme wheezing n breathlessness , that time used Nebuliser Duolin. In fact Nebuliser dose is very strong compared to the Huff puff kit of inhaler for kids.
Montair LC  was stopped after 3 months  of giving her . 


 i would suggest  that go for a second opinion from a senior paedretician, if u r in Pune  , let me know ..maybe I could recommend mine.
At this point of time ....just keep faith  and give your little one good healthy foods and enjoy playing with him :)
Always avoid areas which are smoke filled,pollen, cold n cough .

All will be well ,

 Hi Deeps ,

Sure  ..my paedretician is Dr. Anand Pandit . His clinic is in Deccan . If u visit him in May , you would need to call up for appointment atleast a month earlier.Since he is a very senior doc and carry all the medical files & prescrip along.

let me know if u need any help .
take care

Hi! I myself have had this problem for a long while now. I am allergic to dust, pollen grains and also smoke. Also, I used to get severe allergies due to seasonal vagaries. I tried allopathy for a long while - the situation would worsen every year and I was asked to use antihistamines. I then switched over to homeopathy and took medicines for more than a year and am much better now. Since yours is a small kid, please check out for a good homeopath near your place and take him or her there. Homeopathy doesnt have side effects as opposed to allopathic drugs. Good Luck!

Hi,

My daughter 3.5 yrs was diagnosed Bronchial Asthma one year back. From that time onwards we are giving her Flohale inhaler 2 puffs a day and occassional nebuliser( Levoline+ Budacord) when ever severe coughing and infection used to be there. She was more or less alright with these. But from October to now this year nothing is working. She had such severe bouts of coughing that she was not able to close her mouth. Is it Acute or Chronic Bronchitis? She coughs so much while eating that almost vomits it out.  after completing one antibiotic dosage she again developed similar symptomps now despite keeping her on preventive medicine like Flowhale inhaler. We are very worried. We stay in Bangalore. Can some one please suggest if relocation to Hyderabad will help in this case.

Also suggest some very good Homeopath please. I cant see my child suffer so much.Please some one reply.


Priyanka

Hi Priyanka ,I  can understand your problem and pain . More than relocation , I suggest refer a skilled doctor  who can take care of the little one to help her come out of this sensitivity.For my daughter it was almost a 1 year treatment of allopathy as u can read my  first email but she has improved.I can recommend a doc I  refered to but  he is in Pune  . Check in Blore  - for some senior doctor ...that is better than just giving symptom based medicine.Antibiotics dont help always  , but keep precautions. to pollution and dust and infections.

Take care
Priyanka

Hi Priyanka

My son also have wheezing problem ..we are gone through this winter/  rainy seasons problems.Inhalers are not

much useful ..

Recently we are using salt therpy. Which is beneficial for my son. Just check Respicare website.

you will get all the information from there.

All d best

Hi Priyanka

I second the opinion of Huntkhusi.
Shifting to another city is not really of help.

If you are in Bangalore, then you may visit the homeopathy doctor we were consulting for my son of 5yr who had bronchial asthma with seasonal colds and wheezing, who had to be nebulized often.
 
He is asymptomatic now and doing good after the treatment..

@huntkhushi, 
I also seem to go through similar issue with my 5 yr old kid. Please check the following post:

have you ever thought about Himalaya medicines such as Septilin or Bresol in particular?
