We are going to my son's 6 month follow up with his allergist/immunologist for his medication management of his asthma & check his lung function. He is back on inhaled corticosteroids, seems to be protecting his lungs, but he's had his wheeze/cough back last few days. Stuffy dry nose. Using saline, humidifier, steam. I have taken him off Zyrtec the last week bc he's been so dry. Also on RX Zantac for his GERD. What can I ask him about post KD immune problems! Is there a test I need to ask for? Anyone ever used or heard of Cromolyn?? Anyone with any experience with post asthma,allergies & sees allergist/immunologist can give me feedback. He can't even tolerate swimming pools. We are switching ours to salt. 3y post KD! 7years old. Any feedback appreciated

I am also doing Flonase QD & mucinex prn
We always add in singulair in the winter along with inhalers and nebs - definitely helps him.
I've had horrible allergy/sinus issues, and I had KD at 20 months old. I'm allergic to pretty much everything outside, per the allergy test. Year around I have to take Zyrtec and Flonase. I use a humidifier beside my bed, too. I take mucinex when I start to feel sick. I also use a Neti pot to help with sinuses
On singulair! Had some allergy testing at reg Dr.
Nothing to outside environment showed. Lots of food but not enough to eliminate from diet. Well I add almond milk.
Might be worth seeing is he still refluxing even on meds - might be aspirating???
Not much, we are here now. Just did nasal swab & breathing test. Lungs are good! Sinuses seem blocked again.. possible thrush again
Glad lungs are good!! I know my sons sinus cavity showed up massively blocked on MRI. I found my GERD kids to have a low immunity to be honest
Ok going to gastroenterologist Feb 20. Since he's on high dose Qvar 80mcg & cough & post nasal still present & on Zantac it's time probably for scope! Possibility of eosinophilic esophagitis. We are increasing Zyrtec to twice daily & if cough still present he may do anitibiotic. If cough is better he may lower Qvar to 40mcg bc he gets thrush no matter precautions & could cause stuffy nose as side effect! It's a trial & error time! Low immune systems just suck!!!
Sorry he's going through all of this I know it's hard
No this will be first scope, heart is clear!
