1) Having bad cough and wheezing almost every nite until she throws out. I thought only when cold weather...but
2) After overeating sweets (more than 4 sweets) she will start coughing badly because of the coloring contained in the sweets....
3) Sometimes i notice she's breathing through her mouth instead of nose.....which is not good as our nose have filter but mouth doesn't.
I didn't know the symptoms above are asthma. But i noticed Zahraa had those symptoms 6 months back. But, those symptoms are mild and after treatment with an asthma medicine it will go away. For me it's important to treat symptoms whenwe first notice them. So it will help prevent them from worsening.
Actually, last weekend, i brought Zahraa to see doctor....she gave her ventolin gas, but after 2nd gas her body temperature increase to 38.9 celcius and her lung still not clear (wheezing sound). So she admitted to ward (HKL)...the doctor wanted to observe her progress. She admitted on Saturday nite until Monday. Doctor diagnosed her as asthma. hrmmmmm......
From now on i have to be more careful by avoid things that can worsen her asthma like air pollution especially smoking people, animal or toys with fur, or even those things that she's allergic to. I have to monitor when she's coughing, what causes she's coughing and how many times she's coughing. But some says, asthma will dissapears once kids grow...Aminnnnn....hope that's true.
Currently, Zahraa already starts with inhaler to cure the asthma.
