Brief Answer: relax. Detailed Answer: Hi. Thanks for writing to us. I understand your concern. Your child is having hyperresponsive airway disease for which doctor has prescribed budecort inhaler. It is safe medicine and can be used for longer duration. But I suggest you to be in continous follow up of your pediatrician. As per symptoms it is very important to step up or step down medication as per symptoms. So you should not stop medication of your own. Regarding nasal blockage saline nasal drops can be used at bed time. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can help you further. Wishing your child good health. God bless...
