Re: Pulmicort and sick child
Oh Kelly, I hope she's feeling better soon! I would have to say that it sounds viral to me. Especially with the fever. Bryson has been on Pulmicort for several years (he's 12 now), and we've never had any side effects, period. It's done wonders for him. As for getting sicker than normal, I couldn't say. In the winter he stays sick, but he has had a lot of operations (starting when he was 3 weeks old) and that has lowered his immunity from the get-go. He's always caught more bugs than the rest of the kids his age, even way before he started the Pulmicort. He doesn't use it every day, though, only as needed for those Cronic Croup attacks.
Give her hugs from me & tell her to get to feeling better soon! Hang in there, Mom!
