No! You cannot get Ashma from giving medications to another.

Ashma is a condition that results as an alergic reaction to that around the patient aflicted.

The medications do one of two things. They eitherprevent the airway from closing off or attempt to dialate it and shirink the tissues.

The latter are quick acting, short lived, aids. Talk to your physician and discuss what is best.

What do you mean to take it off the child? How to get a child off of a nebulizer seems proper but if their asthma is bad enough to where they need the nebulizer, only constant medication of another kind will allow them to be away from the nebulizer for periods of time.

As a mother of a child who needed a nebulizer, I prefer to use a nebulizer, on a young child, as opposed to an inhaler. Prior to making any decision, I would discuss the issue with your daughter's pediatric doc. If he tells you it's personal choice, I can assure you that I found the nebulizer easier than I would the inhaler. The inhaler is more of a "puffer", meaning the child would have to inhale at just the right moment to properly receive the intended medication. With a nebulizer, the medication is consistently flowing. Beyond that, kids can hold onto the nebulizer, and "take" their medicine themselves (please do not allow unattended). My son found this fun, and took his necessary "medicine" without any fuss.
