My 5yo DD has a URI which has triggered her Asthma. She doesn't have flare ups often but right now she's having issues. She actually asks for breathing treatments, which she doesn't like doing. The problem is she's asking for them every hour and a half or so. She does not have a blueish color and is not gasping for breath. If that were the case, I'd be in the ER not on CM. When she is asking for them she does have rapid, shallow breathing, sometimes with retraction. We went to Urgent Care last night and she responded well to the treatment but they added a special medicine (Adavent?) but said Albuterol is about all we can do at home. I'm considering taking her back to Urgent Care but just don't know if it's necessary or not.Answer Question
