Re: Coughing when running around?

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).
Thats kindof what I am afraid of..How do they test them? He has been to an allergist before, but for food allergies. A different Dr. told us that he may develop asthma, so when he began coughing I started to think of that in the back of my mind..
