Young children often develop asthma like symptoms after an attack of cough and cold as the airways become hyper reactive. If he continues to be breathless, continue with nebulization with asthalin and budecort. You may repeat a course of omnacortil for 3 to 5 days. Different manufacturers have different guidelines regarding use of foracort in children below the age of 6 years. You may discuss it with your paediatrician.
