Brief Answer:
needs inhalers

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Allergy and cough due to that persistent in your child for these two years and the fact that he needs monthly antibiotics for cough means he is suffering from allergic bronchitis.

This is usually treated with montair initially. If you are unable to stop it and if your kid is getting frequently ill, I would advice you start him on preventive inhalers which do not have any side effects as people talk about. Try preventive inhalers like budesonide atleast for 3 to 6 months. Your child's problem may be brought under control. Budesonide is a steroidal medicine and should not be used in the presence of an infection.

Montair can be given for few years without any problem. But if problem is persistent, you need to start inhalers too.

Antibiotics are not prescribed in an asthma attack, unless it is suspected to be a bacterial infection.

Hi Doc my name is Jash, 29, 5'2" in height, and weighs 102 lbs., married. I am having this dry cough since I was young and had a history of bronchitis when i was 1 year old.Just recently, Im having colds, sore throat, productive cough and excessive mucus that bothers me so much especially at night. I took muculytic syrup and capsules, natural cough remedies such as lemon and ginger but i think there's no improvement, Cough still bothers me and it gets even harder and dryer that sometimes i may experience tightness of the chest,and one thing that makes me worried is that we're in the process of having a baby. I am a year married but still wanting to have a child, Does having this (severe) cough would greatly affect of our desire to pregnancy?What are the foods that i need to get rid off that may trigger severe cough and foods that are healthy to the lungs?and if ever I am a week pregnant now then i happened to take this muculytic syrups does it affect the child? i am hoping that my query will be given clarity. Thank you so much doc.

My 8 year old has a croupy cough which comes out mor ein morning and night and when she is running around so we have restricted activity. She has no fever or other symptoms. She has been on a steroid now twice a day since Saturday. She went to school today but the cough sounds even worse now. I also have been givign her abuterol inhaler twice a day as well. My younger daughter had bronchitis last week. Wondering if she needs a nebulizer. Her breathing though seems fine. I would have thought the abuterol would have done the trick and this is day three of the meds. Help!
