Thank you for your query,
Your child seems to have Hyper reactive airway disease.
Continue the medication as prescribed by your Pediatrician.
Omnacortil can be given for shorter duration and give according to the prescribed dose and duration.
If there is no improvement, reconsultation is required to assess the child response and the modification in treatment.
Hope I have answered your query.
