Cough, cold, wheezing, dark under eyes. On Montair LC. What is wrong?

Hi my daughter who is 2 years old gets recurrent cough and cold . She is on montair LC kid since last sept but still had about 4 episodes of cough and cold since then. Was adviced with duolin/levolin with flowhale 4 times a day when wheezing was excessive. Now for prevention she was adviced with budecort 100 puff twice a day. Wanted to know if asthama symptoms reduce with age in children. What are the supporting vitamin etc that need to be given. also noticed that there is darkening of tissue under her eyes which give it a sunken look. Is it some deficiency? Her weight is about 11.2 kg and otherwise is a normal and active child. Please suggest.

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

The bronchioles that are small tubes that carry oxygen to the lungs. The constriction of these tubes, their narrowing along with increased secretions results in what is called bronchial asthma.

Normally the size of these narrow airways increases with age. So even if there is some constriction the bigger size of the airway prevents a adult from having significant symptoms. This is the concept in stating that the symptoms improve with age.

There is only one way to prevent bronchial asthma. Prevent the allergen causing symptoms. This is not a easy task.

Only restriction to food is avoid colored substances. Also give a balanced diet. If a food substance is identified to cause the problem stop it.
