My ds (3) has asthma, he was given the brown inhaler to take twice a day and blue inhaler when ill.

He is so much better that our gp suggested stopping the brown inhaler and seeing how he gets on.

It's been around 6 months and he's suddenly started getting croup every month or so.

Does anyone know if the brown inhaler helps with the prevention of croup? I am tempted to put him back on it to see if it helps but don't want to give him medicine if not needed.

My gp is on holiday and the locum won't discuss on going asthma treatment plan
