The only treatment for asthma is inhalers like we don't worry about heart and diabetes medication, similarly asthma inhalers are very very important. They are safe, no side effects if taken correctly and especially in such age groups there's complete resolution. Please don't worry, give your child inhalers and regularly follow up with a chest physician or paediatrician.

The diagnosis of tb cannot be made by a chest x-ray alone. It can also not be excluded by a chest x-ray. Instead, the diagnosis of active tuberculosis means finding the bacterium in a sample of bodily fluid from the patient. You may need to discuss it further over a call for a detailed consultation. Thanks.
