is it normal for my 2 year old to look so pale today? she's been sick with some kind of virus and/or allergy (doctor's not sure) that aggravated her asthma symptoms. she's been on the nebulizer every 3-4 hours even overnight. when i took her in to the doctor this morning she gave her 2 treatments back to back! the wheezing/retracting has almost stopped altogether (although between treatments she still wheezes hard) but she looks so pale! she's eating/drinking okay considering she's not feeling well. her fever has not returned since it went away this morning. her pulse ox was great at the doctor, but her heartrate was very high (about 160). now though it has stopped pattering so quickly. is it possible all these treatments are what's draining the color from her face? her eyes don't look right either, larger than normal, with black circles underneath and sunk in (we had a rough night, though)
