Suffering badly form asthametic bronchitis

My son is 5 yr old and he started having ear infections very often when he was 3 year old .Then we were reffered to an ENT and he diagnosed him with blockage in his ears and asked us to give the ENT a visit again after three months and the blockage luckily got cleared.My family doc kept on diagnosing my son with sinus problem .I don t know what she ment by that and we started giving our son anti allergics during allergy seasons and it made some improvements and he began to get less ear infections .My doc also kept diagnosing my son with eczema and recently an skin specialist diagnosed him with atopic dermatitis and also said that my son is suffering from asthematic bronchitis and this atopic dermatitis has a connection with the bronchitis thing.My son has been having coughs ,runny nose and the cough at night gets stronger and no cough syrups make his cough go away .I never hear any wheezing sound when he breaths and he never had breathlessness its just cough ,runny nose and sometimes with fever when he catches ear infection along with it.He recently had cough ,fever and ear infection and now my family physician has prescribed him with ventolin (beta blocker) ,fluvent,prednisone,coactifed,cefprozil .Is this the correct diagnosis for him please do let me know i m extremely worried about his bronchitis and is there any test through which we can figure out that its the right diagnosis.I also noticed that while he was ill if he starts to run,or laugh hard he starts to have cough again .Please do give me a reply .Sometimes at night his cough keeps on going for almost half an hour or sometimes for almost an hour and he vomits sometimes when he coughs .Another thing he has been having ear infections when he started his kindergarten in year 2009 and the infections began to hit him very often since then. This time he had his ear infection after 4months and that strange cough he started to have since last year . (Please note that when we told our physician that his cough last for an hour at night its only then she gave him only fluvent twice daily and now just recently she had given him ventolin and I have used ventolin just once for my son.Our doc never did any tests for his bronchitis and its just us who told our family physician that our skin specialist suspected my son has asthematic bronchitis ). Thank you.

Hello there:)
I am heart broken to hear about your son. I was looking for an answer to something when I come across your post. I never respond to stuff but I can not pass this one by because I am a mother of 2 boys and think of your son having to suffer form this when he does not have to. Your child is suffering from food allergies and an over growth of yeast (candida) Please research this for yourself you will be so happy to finally have an answer. I use the threelac there are age/weight recommendations at the above site. You are also going to be shocked the doctors did not tell you this. I don't know why but they are just not educated on the matter but are starting to become more so. Growing up my little brother suffered the same and he always had a line across his nose from running his palm up his runny nose now termed "the allergic salute." It is so sad to me your are seeing different doctors of their specialty for all your son's problems and he is on all this medication that is just treating the symptoms. Find a doctor in your area that specializes in candida overgrowth and food allergies and you will feel empowered as a parent because you can finally work together to treat the cause. It is classic the ear infections, skin problems, coughing and runny nose sinus problems are all from this. Please trust me...I am not a Doctor but I have been there done that and I know your frustration and helplessness. I am a registered nurse and I mom I hope this helps:)

Homeopath Dr. KOMAL vig's  Response
the medications prescribed for the asthmatic bronchitis are apt..
and yes there is a co- relation between the asthma and the atopic dermatitis..
i will advice you to opt for homeoapthic medicines along with the allopathic medicines..
it will help him to build up his immunity and resisitance against asthma and as his asthma will get better the atopic dermatitis will also heal with the homeopathic medicines
you can get a haemogram and a chest -x- ray done.
are there any triggering factors for the onset of asthma like hot .cold climates,dust. seasonal changes, anger, fear, sleep deprivation..
wishing him good health
god bless..
