Hi everyone. My daughter is coming 4 years and has, in a short time, developed what seems to be asthma. She had an attack in the park playing with her friends, that was when I took her to the doc's and he perscribed a ventolin with an air chamber. She then seems to be weezing in the night and for the first time I have to give her the ventolin, which stopped the breathing problems and weezing instently.... is it normal for asthma to develop in a matter of a week with no previous signs?? Should I seek more help or second opinion?? Are there special doc. for this type of thing?? Times have changed since I was a kid.... I have an appointment with her doc again tomorrow, but hope to hear some personal experience from others. Can anyone offer some?
I have asthma myself, along with many allergies... her father only suffers from hay fever. Thank you!

My daughter has asthma and she uses a nebulizer when she wheezes. She is six and has had asthma since she was 10 months old. It is very scary when she has an attack. I take her to a asthma and lung dr. We have her on flovent daily and albuteral when she wheezes. She gets very sick when she gets a cold. It always end up in her chest.
i also have asthma and allergies. I developed asthma when I was 21 and the dr says you can develop this over night.

Hi, just so that you can feal comfortable with the doctors diagnosis, you can take her to a pulmonologist they can tell you for sure whats going on, but if you have asthma yourself most likelly thats what it is. Asthma can develope at any time with no previous signs or maybe the signs where there and you didn't notice them. Like maybe she would sneeze or have a runny nose etc.
Good like and always remenber if you are not satisfied with a diagnosis, always get a second opinion.
