Iam no stranger to asthma, I had three other kids with it who grew out of it. I am just looking for remedies and solutions I may not have heard of. I have a nine year old who seems to be taking longer growing out of it. He was adopted his bio mom was a cocaine addict he was born with it as were all my others. So any solid suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Does he have carpet in his room?  It holds triggers...it should be vaccuumed every day at the very least...gotten rid of, if the episodes are bad and/or frequent.  Pillows and mattresses can be encased.  Pets with dander can be a trigger.  Cleaners and scents can be a trigger, as well. Do you have a; peak flow meter?  Check his peak flow frequently...when the values start to go down, an episode could be coming.  A neb treatment, or inhaler should be used.
