Mistaking reactions for asthma attacks
Is it possible that my dd's asthma attacks (which come on so quick and seem to be triggered by ???) are peanut exposures?
Most often her attacks happen at school or at friends and have required hospital stays. Sometimes I know they are due to weather changes or a cold, but what about the ones that happen quickly w/o an obvious trigger? She declines so rapidly. Can it be an allergic rx w/o hives or other obvious symptoms IYO?
I was reading the articles on how some fatal allergic rx's have been mistaken as asthma attacks and it got me thinking. Maybe I should be putting more thought into the cause of her asthma attacks. It's also odd that she was dx'd for both at about the same time.
