asthma cough with 4.5 year old InkDMomma 35 kids; Clinton Township, Michigan 27418 posts

My son doesn't have to use an inhaler every single day just days where his asthma bothers him, which happens more when it gets warmer out. Lately he's been getting that nasty cough when he wakes up in the morning and it takes him a little bit to get over it with some water and his inhaler. I was thinking that maybe an air purifier in his room might help? but I wasn't sure :? We usually keep the house at the right temperature so it's not too warm or cold for the kids at night so I was eliminating that factor.
Has an air purifier helped with someones asthma that you know?

Well I haven't tried them all out or anything. But ours is a Homedic (sp?). We got it at WalMart for like $100. It has a fan option too and it's super quiet.

I'll look into that one :D Thank you. I am just hunting all over for SOMETHING to help him that isn't more medications.

I know what you mean. Every single time my son gets the smallest cold, it turns into complete hell. They will put him on antibiotics, his nebulizer, and liquid steroids, and allergy medication - none of which help. Now that I invested in the purifier, he hasn't had a cough at all (besides when he caught croup from daycare).

His makes him cough more. I used to put it in every night for him but I think it gives him too much moisture and messes with him.

:!:



My son is the SAME way. Too much of anything gives him an attack. I think the purifier is worth trying out.
