Re: Coughing when running around?

If it doesn't stop, I'd say it's probably asthma. That's how my DS's started out--dry coughing after running around outside. And then it progressed over about 6 months to a full blown asthma attack that I thought was just a really bad cough until my FIL (a dr) came over with some cough meds and said that it wasn't a cough, it was an asthma attack, and it suddenly all made sense. Went to the allergist and it was confirmed, got an inhaler and daily allergy meds and we've had to use the inhaler about 10 times in the past year (spring and fall are his worst times).
