Samshi, your child has asthmatic attack,and because of that he has responded to brochodilator inhalation.
now if he is proved to have allergic to some kind of allergens,then there are some drugs which do help to prevent further attacks of brochospasm.

Continue Budesal as advised, as the course is 2 months. If you stop it and make it as and when, effect will not be optimal. Also consider starting Montair tablets or satchet 4 mg for 2 to 3 weeks (depending on symptoms) time.

Regards,

Dr.Monish J.Thomas

Budesal is the " preventer"(anti-inflammatory) medication in order to prevent further exacerbations.
It is advisable to continue for atleast 4 weeks , even if symptoms are relieved.
You need not worry as inhaled steroid (budesal) at low dose will not have as much systemic adverse effects like oral steroids.
Do get your son to rinse his mouth after use of inhaler to avoid fungal infection/thrush.
Levolin is the "reliever" medication -- you can use whenever required.
Since your son is well (asymptomatic), adding monelukast may not be necessary at this juncture.
Avoid allergens like dust, pets and anyone smoking at home.
Asthma is common and many children do quite well on taking few precautions.

If a diagnosis of Mild Persistent Asthma has been made, You need to continue Budecort for a period of 3-6 months. Rather than Budesal which is a combination, use only Budecort. Budecort is for prevention and there is little use of it on when required basis.

Baby is suffering from cold and more importantly cough since past 2 days. Doctor has prescribed T-minic drops 0.5 ml oral for 3 days and post to which cough didnot subside, then to use Kufril drops 0.5 ml thrice a day. However on using first instance of T-minic baby had pooped 4 times (Can be because he was on antibiotics just a week back for ear infection. His stools were more in number atleast twice after every feed. But once medicnes are stopped his stools were back to normal and he poops only once a day). and also his cough has increased very much. His feeding routine got slightly distrubed as he is not able to complete the bottle with ease. He leaves an ounce or so sometimes due to stuffy nose or congestion. Are these medications safe for a 5 month old baby? if not what precautions to be taken to soothe him from cough and cold?

My 4 year old started losing her voice on Saturday. Now tonight she started a cough and sounds raspy. She has asthma and went to the skin doctor and her bumps in her face were strep bacterial virus & is on antibiotics. (Last week) do I need to get her in to her doctor to have them check her out?
