Found out 2yr old ds has PA last week. Thought he had reaction last night...had sudden bad congestion which had him crying. He had eaten a white chocolate flavored yogurt 30 minutes earlier. We gave Benadryl and late last night he started coughing. By late this morning he had asthma which previously has only occured following a cold or eating peanut butter. Could this be part of a reaction or is it unlikely? Thanks!

Part of the reaction. You need to call your doctor.

Could be part of a reaction, could also be from crying. Many asthmatic kids react from vigorous laughing or crying.

When my 3 year old PA son has had reactions, it triggers his asthma or sometimes croup that night. His asthma stays flared up for almost a week. If it's particulary bad, they put him on prednisone for a few days. A cold will trigger his asthma as well. We're seeing a pulmonologist this week since he's on high-powered asthma preventatives and he still flares up.

I'm an adult so I don't know how much it's worth but if I have a breathing & pulse reaction it takes days to completely pass. At the moment I still have traces now from something i ate Monday night (it's noon on Thurs), but it's much less than at it's peak and the doctors have no explanation. Diff ppl have diff systems I guess.
