    Asthma or something else?

    My 10 year old son gets an extremely blotchy face with exercise (basketball for now). He gets a white circular around his mouth and spots by his eyes on his cheeks. The rest of his face gets bright red. He complains of his throat feeling tight and he has trouble getting his breath. I’m a nurse and have older children, I’ve never seen this blotchy pattern before so I’m perplexed. He is happy and healthy otherwise. I spoke to his doctor about this and he ordered blood work {CBC and thyroid function....

    I have e-asthma. My body creates too many eosinophils which loads my lungs with mucus. I average one five to six day hospitalization per year. I highly recommend Nebulizers. They get the meds deeper in the lungs which can increase their effectiveness.

    Recently Diagnosed

    I've recently been diagnosed with asthma. I noticed last year that after I had bronchitis, it became harder and harder to get air in and I had this persistent cough that wouldn't go away. I initially just thought I had bad allergies but once I took a PFT last week, I was told that I had the lungs of a 47 year old. I was shocked! I am now on an inhaler that I have to use everyday as well as nebulizer. I have my rescue inhaler just in case I need it as well. I'm trying my best to wrap my....

    Cough that does not go away - could it be candida????

    I have an issue with a cough and runny sinus drainage all day ... on and off. It started in 1994. I was on this board starting around 2000 for many years. I was really bad with severe coughing .. non stop for 24-36 hours at a time. And I was told I was a medical challenge. I went to National Jewish Hospital in Denver in 2003 and they did not really have any answers. I was and have been recently tested for asthma, but I do not have asthma. And I found doctors who would work with me and we would bounce....
