Asthma in toddlers?

Posted , 2 users are following.

My daughter is 2.5 years old and from 4 months old she has been in and out of hospital with Broncholotis (excuse the spelling) and chest infections. She often has a dry cough. She was given a blue inhaler a few weeks ago because she has a sustained dry cough with periods of wheezing and the doctor could hear crackly sounds in her chest.  

She is still having periods of coughing (often followed by vomitting due to the cough). A main trigger is changes in temperatures such as going for the warmth inside to the cold out side or when getting out of a bath. With the cold weather coming I know this is going to be an issue over the next few months. Could this be asthma based? Our GP  will not diagnose asthma because of her age and will only treat infections as and when they occur, but feel I'm constantly at the doctors with her cough etc. Any advice would be gratefully recieved x
