How to use breathing machine for ASTHMA?

Resolved Question:

Yes I have a question my son has asthma and I have never got a straight answer on how to use his breathing machine. Justin is 2 years old. He has a real nasty cold right now to wear he is coughing so bad he hasn't got much sleep tonight an has been up almost every 30min to a hour. I have been giving him his breathing machine with just albuterol every 3hrs but his lip quivers now when I give it to him like he is really cold which he might be. He has been feeling really warm but don't have a fever so he has a diaper and his blanket on. I'm trying to be as detailed as possible because I know it is hard to answer questions like this but I don't want to hurt my child by giving him to much of his treatment and the hospital wants me to bring him out in 27 degree weather while he's very sick already and I won't do that. I'm not giving my kid phenomena. He also has Vix baby rub on as well. Just his chest though. I'm trying everything to help him. Please help.

Thank you for your query at
From the images that you sent, it does look like parasite.
Since you have already given your stool for O&P test, it is better you take a course of albendazole/ mebendazole.
Even your symptoms are suggestive of a parasite infestation.
Let me know the results of your stool test.
Feel free to discuss further,

Patient replied :

Dr Deepu,
Would it be better to get a parasite type confirmation first as, say it is a pig parasite I could have the larvae? I hav felt some pressure on my left of head near ear and I've had it for roughly a month now. I had a CT without contrast done for my sinuses as a ENT dr saw my sinuses were inflamed so he ordered this. Simple brain scan fine.
If it come back as positive for tapeworm, should I be seeing infectios disease specialist or a Gastro? my insurance kicks in on the 1st. Say I do have the cysts, I haven't had a seizure yet...would I be ok waiting till after first or its critical to get on one diagnosed. I seem to be having a mass infection bc I noticed 3 more in mucus stool Thank you for your help!

You can prophylactically take the medicines i advised, since you already have given your stool for examination.
It definitely looks like a parasite,mostly a tapeworm, but the results will give a conclusive picture.
Based on the results, I can advise you further.
Regarding the pressure, it is probably due to the inflamed sinuses. I don't think it has anything to do with cysts since the CT BRAIN was normal.
You should consult a medical gastro who is the best doctor for your condition.
