ds2 (10) has what the doctor says is severe hayfever. this year he has been able to have de sensitization injections but havent seen any improvement.
i have managed to get his eye and nose symptoms under control by giving him double antihistamine and sprays and stuff (doctors orders) but he says his throats itching and he cant breathe as well as normal.
ive given him preventer and salbutamol.

im worried about his chest at school today because he plays football on the field and stuff.
im not very good with asthma type problems as he only really seems to get a problem during hayfever.
can anyone advise? ive got visions of him gasping for air!

don't know much about modern asthma treatment but has he got both preventer and reliever inhalers? Has he seen an asthma nurse to make sure he's taking them properly?

if you post with a heading that mentions asthma you'd probably find more people read it.

If he's on double doses of antimhistamines and he's taking his inhalers and is still having problems, you might have to suggest he doesn't play on the field. He should take other evasive measures too - windows closed at night and whilst in car, sunglasses on when outside, staying inside a break times.
