Asthma, cough. On prednisolone, was put on anti histamine and ventolin. Why is there no improvement?

Hi there, my two kids (5yo and 3yo) suffer from asthma. The both use a preventer flixotid 125mg two puffs two times a day and also ventolin during crises as well as prednisolone during bronquites/asthma cough crises. I has show little or no improvement on their cough. They were put on a anti-histaminic (Zyrtec Kids) for hay fever, which did show some results in the older boy but none for the younger. Is anything else I should consider or talk to their doctor about it?

Welcome to Health Care Magic..

I read your queries and it seems that your kids are on treatment for allergy and asthma ..
I suggest you to talk to your doctor about cough whether its dry cough or cough with mucus secretion ..
Your doctor will prescribe Ambrolite for reducing cough and antibiotics if necessary after examination.
Do not worry your child will show improvement in next visit.

Hope this information is helpful to you.
