My boy at the age of six months was diagnosed of asthmatic bronchitis, which lasted till he became 4 years old. We did all we could medically and he got better, but the attack was re-occuring. He took a whole pharmacy full of drugs, but he could not still get off of it. I tried to keeping him very warm, bath him once a week, and only clean him up with warm water around his buttocks. If he had the attack, I give him medicine for cold, and I realised he was getting out of it. He now sleeps well and we give God all the THANKS for this simple knowledge that has actually free my boy today.

  • I’m so pleased he is feeling better and feel so very sorry for him. I’ve had bronchitis three times now and as an adult it knocked me around, I couldn’t even imagine how your son was feeling, I hope he never gets it again.

  • What mothers with kids in this situation need do, is to be very keen, and try various methods to help your suffering child. When they are coughing and struggling for breath, they look up to us as if asking, can’t you help?

  • You are right there can be a number of sources for the asthma and it is sometimes hard to find what is triggering it. It can be animals, mould, dust mites, household cleaners etc etc. My son’s asthma seems to have settled down – cross my fingers and on the breathing test the dr gave him today he scored well! :) I’m so thrilled.

  • Another thing, avoid pouring water on his head during bath, clean it with hand towel and he should always have socks on.

  • This is usually caused by allergy reaction I suppose. My son got it from the coldness of the walls of my room which were growing moisture, I was advised to move him out of my room into a more spacious area, which actually helped. So please, can you just look around and see what might be the cause of the allergy causing the asthma. It could be cats, dogs, rubbing oil, perfume, foam bath, indoor plants or even the environment

  • My daughter has struggled with it too. People could never seem to understand that we would avoid social gatherings if others had colds as they could not understand that a cold was not just a cold for us but always became something more serious. My daughter is a bit better these days, but it is still a great worry every winter.
