Brief Answer: relax. Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for your query. I understand your concern. According to symptoms treatment is stepped up or stepped down. Once on medication there should be no symptoms. I suggest you to get your child examined by pediatrician as treatment needs to be modified. If such a patient will come to my clinic I will start inhaled corticosteroids low dose in combination with long acting beta 2 agonist. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have any further question. Wishing your child good health. God bless..
