    Yes, i took her to the Dr. She had a bit of bronchitits-so he
    has put her on advair 100/50, zrytec, singulair and albuterol
    inhaler as needed. We are going to try and wean her off these
    meds over the next few months and see how it goes. Meantime I
    am keeping her out of the hot tub for the most part so I will
    know if that had anything to do with it. I have seen a lot
    about rashes and bromine but there are also quite a few cases
    of bronchial irritations after too high levels of bromine in
    hot tubs and quite a few articles on swimmers at indoor pools
    having issues with bromine. I have a friend who's daughter
    swims on a High School team and everytime they come inside and
    swim indoors she gets similair symptoms and is put on
    singulair and inhaler. Four girls on the team have gotten
    inhalers as well since they have swam inside(bromine pool)

    We also had gotten her a new comforter when this all started
    that had an awful smell when we first opened it. That has
    also been tucked away till we can figure out if these had
    anything to do with it. The timing may be just a coincidence
    or maybe it is a sensitivity to chemicals. I have an appt. in
    the end of May with allergist immunologist to try and help
    figure out what is happening. Thanks
