onesmallkayak: My oldest daughter started Ventolin syrup at three for night-time coughing, and at age 24 is a regular user of various inhalers. She is two inches shorter than predicted.
When my second daughter, 16 years younger, started night-time coughing at three, I avoided the Ventolin route and tried massage and steamers, etc. I started her on a salt pipe at about age four and this, I believe, has made the biggest single difference.
Instead of being up through the night with her coughing she could have a last session at about 11pm and sleep through. She shows hardly any asthmatic tendencies now she is seven.
My oldest daughter, who is now a nurse, tells me that there is sound evidence that salt pipes relieve symptoms and help strengthen the air pipe such that it is less likely to collapse inwards, but this only occurs in small children; it is too late for her. However, she says, GPs are reluctant to recommend it in case parents fail to use Ventolin in a life-threatening situation. Can you please recommend a salt pipe to all the young mothers in this chat room? It is no fun growing up chronic asthmatic. If a salt pipe reduces the triggers and makes the difference, as with my second daughter, then shouldn’t it be the first choice for small children?

DrMikeThomas: Unfortunately, the evidence for salt pipes as having a big role in routine asthma care just isn’t there at the moment. As asthma is an intrinsically variable condition, it can be quite hard to be sure what has made a difference. Experimenting with complementary and alternative treatments seems fine to me, but I would advise that this is done in collaboration with your nurse and/or GP, and to continue with the usual treatment while this is done
