    advice please

    going abroad in a week or so and got a few worries about my eldest son (5) he suffers bad hayfever, asthma and occasionally a bit of eczema! he has medicines prescribed for asthma/hayfever. do you think the nurse at my local gp's would mind if I made an appointment to have a chat with her about the holiday? we're going away for 2 weeks and I'm worried incase he gets bad over there.

    I'd just book an appointment and explain when you get there.

    they wouldn;t mind at all - that's part of the gp service

    i would, and ask about the procedures in that country too

    and take a list of what he has prescribed.

    maybe a chemist may know this, and then you wouldn't have to wait for hours in the doctors waiting room.

    aww sweetie, thats what your docs are for, make the appointment and describe your worries x x

    thanks, didn't want the nurse to think I was wasting an appointment. :roll: just want to get it clear in my mind what to do if he does get poorly over there and if theres any thing they can give me to take with us just incase.

    I think I'll pop to boots the chemist for a chat tomorrow and see what they say. thanks xx

    Aways got NHSdirect, they are always helpful.

    Try not to spend your whole holiday worrying about him too. If you're going somewhere warm, it'll probably help his conditions.

    might also be worth a visit to a good health food shop, they have some great advice, tips and products for this sort of situation. worth a try.
