asthma attack in 3 yr old

DS had full on attack yesterday, we both spent the night in hospital while he received treatment every hour.

he did have afew attacks last winter requiring a nebuliser but this was enough.

so am worrying that this winter it might be even more serious, he has had a cold for afew days and it just hit his chest yesterday.

it seems that he is vulnerable to asthma whenever he is suffering from cough/cold etc. so heartbreaking to see him all curled up on hospital bed unable to speak or run.

any ideas on preventative measures i can take???

I don't have any advice but want to bump this up to the top for you in the hope someone more qualified to help comes along.

Good luck on this one, it must be a dreadful worry for you.

Might be a daft suggestion but have you thought of adding a vitamin supplement to his meals? Or use a vitamin syrup?

does he have inhalers to use anyway?

My DS 3.5 has this also so I'd like to see the responses to this!
My Mum seems to think it's when we have cut the grass but he has had it other times too?! sad
