Help should I be worried?!

So we took my 22mo old DD to Emergecare yesterday for breathing problems, which shes had before we pretty much assumed she had asthma because it runs in both sides of the family. They took chest xrays which were clear, gave her a breathing treatment and then gave her a steroid shot. This seemed to work great. They gave us Prednisolone syrup to give her for the next 4 days. This was the first day we gave it to her and shortly after giving it to her, her bottom lip became really pale almost like we put really light lipstick on it. But other than that she has no other symptoms. Should I be concerned? If so is there a 24hr hotline I could call?

  • my DD had the same prescription. Did you try wiping it off?? It could be the liquid getting on her lip and turning to powder form...
