Attn: Joe De Livera - 11 month old with asthma and acid refluxHello Joe,
My son is 11 months old and has a history of asthma triggered by a cold.
His history is as follows:
He contracted his first infection when he was 6 weeks old. Due to his age he was hospitalized as he had developed a fever of 103 degrees F. He was administered antibiotics. He did not need to be treated for breathing difficulties during this time.
After this he has been contracting infections from his older brother and wheezing approximately every 3 weeks. The pediatrician put him on pulmicort and albuterol. When he was 4 months old he contracted a particularly bad infection where he was hospitalized again and given a 5 day course of oral corticosteroids. We were sent to a pediatric pulmonologist who changed the albuterol to duo neb.
When he was 6 months old the pulmonologist diagnosed him with reflux and put him on Zantac. But he continued wheezing. We stopped the Zantac when he was 9 months old.
So far he has had many rounds of antibiotics and he had to take oral corticosteroids 3 times in all so far.
He has just recovered from a cold which turned into an ear infection. Now he spits up after every nursing and is very cranky if he is laid down after a nursing. He was exclusively breastfed and was started on solids at 6 months.
I would like to strengthen his immunity and see him fight the infections without the asthma and reflux.
Thank you in advance for your advice
