Child. Wheezing problem. On seroflo and asthalin inhalers. Remedy? - Online Doctor Chats
I am xxxxxx
How are you doing today?
I am good. Thanks
I need to know, when can we stop these inhaler's and is there any alternative solution for complete remidation.
At this age, the width of the airways is very small and it becomes difficult for the baby to breath and XXXXXXX the body requirements
as the baby ages, the width increases the air goes into the lungs without wheeze
so as the age, the frequency of adminstriing medicines increase
So, what is solution for these, and how o prevent completely.
Can you help me to over come this issue, and my son got wheezing problem, if I stop the inhaler for couple of days.
My suggestion is not to withdraw medicines now
and in rainy season it becomes more and if the environment is more with dust, it increases.
It takes a longer time
Generally it takes a year or two years before the airways grow in size to XXXXXXX the oxygen requirements
So, it is normal for this age, and what caused this to happen for the bay , were it started from 3 months.
You would be harming the baby if you stop giving him medicines
Are you worried about the side effects of the medicines?
Why were you worried, or looking for an instant fix?
As parents what you can do are these at this stage before the doctor withdraw the inhalers
They trigger an reaction which cause narrowing of airways further
I am not looking for an instant fix, but thinking for a longer run, my son should be healthy and if it takes years, i am not bother, but it should complete remediation.
2) Make sure he is not frequent respiratory infection
More infection more problems
even mild cough should be attended correctly by the doctor so that it does not go down into the lower airways
How can we avoid and this is time ,w ere we will join him to a playgroup?
3) Give him medicine regularly
Now you can let him play
but make sure that he uses clean hanky
Okay, the medicine in the sense, it is inhaler or any other we should follow??
once he comes back home, wash his face, ears, eyes, mouth and nostrils with warm water with salt in it
That washes off all the dust that is stick to these
You should educate him to ask his mom about this procedure volunatarily
He should carry the inhalar all the time if he is suffocating to inhale the medicine
Let him know that these are all temporary
and it will help him play for long time and better
He will have peer pressure once he joins school
so at any time he should not feel bad about this else he stops using the inhaler
If you allwoing him to nursery, play school you should let the guardian know about washing in such a way
It hardly takes 5 minutes to wash the face and hands.
But, as approximately, how many it will take to cmplete relief for my son.
Since, As a father, ia m worried about my son and is feature.
Till 5 years of age
Okay, so later on we can stop inhaler slowly...
sometimes lesser than that
as the situation comes in control.
If you can speak to a Pediatric Pulmonologist he can educate you well
Yes, I understand.
Okay, I heard a doctor who is providing medicine for these problems, and it is Ayurvedic medicine, should I go for it.
Education and adherence are here
are key things for successful and complete recovery
I have no knowledge about the scientific underpinnings of alternative therapy like Ayurveda.
Since, My surrounding people, suggested to go for ayurvedic and I am zero knowledge wth these remediation. so, I thought to confirm with experience doctors like you.
Did you follow?
You can speak to a Pediatric Pulmonologist first
They will provide the 3 doses of medicine and every dose with period of 45 days it seems.
and then to a Ayurveda specialist
You can decide then
What is pulmonologist?
They treat airway diseases from allergy
Is there any doctor available from thxxxxxxxxwebsite, to talk to those specialist?
arising out of allery
