My two year old was diagnosed with asthma last summer. It all of a sudden started. I would reccommend taking her to a pulmonologist. The ER gave me a nebulizer and albuterol after she was admitted for two days because she was having a hard time breathing and her oxygen was low. We saw the pulmonologist in January and he has made our life easier with inhalers. It was very difficult to find a pulmonologist that takes child patients. I think that they may have to have some sort of serious liability insurance or something. So, I have to take my daughter an hour away to see someone but it has definitely been worth it.View Thread
