Pulmicort - Steroids for Asthma/Lung Issues

Do any of you have children who have taken Pulmicort or another steroid for asthma/lung issues. My son was born 3 months premature and therefore had immature lungs. In addition he had a chest tube for a pneumo-thorax and pneumonia all in the first two weeks of life, came home on oxygen, etc. This was all a year ago and he's doing incredible. Has been off of oxygen since April. All of that said, he is struggling with weather changes and the cold and flu season. A tiny cold leads to wheezing and bronchiolitis almost every time. My doc...

I Feel like I'm Under water....HELP!!!

I have an ear infection in both ears and I feel like my whole head is under water, because of the fluid in my ears. My left ear is ringing and my right ear is popping. I went to the doctor on Monday and they gave me some antibiotics. I have taken my third dose of meds this morning, and my ears still have no improvement. So my question is how do I get the feeling of being under water to go away?? Any suggestions would be very helpful. Thank you.

Rash, Rash, Rash!!!!!

Where do I begin? I took Bella into the pediatrician's office for what I thought was sever diaper rash. Her doctor sent me home with medication for a yeast infection and Thrush. We used Monistat and Nystatin for a week, it didn't work. So I took her back to the doctor's office, they then sent me home Lotrimon and another dose of Nystatin. Another week went by, went back to the Dr's. office and they say that she doesn't have a diaper rash nor a yeast infection, it is now Exzema in the diaper area. The next week Bella got really sick...
