 My 3 yr old son has been diagnosed with atopic asthma by the paed pulmonologist. he has been prescribed duolin and seroflo inhalers 2puffs twice a day for a month. Also he has got the IGE test done which is very high (count 355). As per doctor he has this problem due to genetic composition as both of our near relatives have got asthma. Although after giving these inhalers his condition has improved a lot but we are worrried if prolonged use of these bronchodilators would affect his growth and bone development. Also when we asked doctor about the steam inhalation he has asked us not to give. As per him that would not help in any ways. We are even giving him homeopathy medicines for last 3 months (Dr Batras). in home remedies we have tried giving him chyawanprash and honey but he doesn't take it at all. Please let us know what shall we do..?

I am in the same boat, asthama is on the rise in bangalore especially among kids. have been using asthaline, duoline, forocort, levolin, budecort etc since last 2 yrs now for both kids.

Not sure abt the long term effects, but use them since it give immediate relief to the kids. cant see them grasping for breath.

 I too have been using the same inhalors for my son. He's 3 1/2 yrs now. I know that the asthama and related discomfort reduces and usually stops by the time kids become 5 yrs. I use both sparingly and instead incluse flax seed in his food. Flax seed is supposed to relieve all kinds of cough related allergies. You too could try the same.
