I have a 6 year old daughter who always find and waste/play with her liquid albuterol inhalation solution to wash her dolls hair....So when I go to get one or two to start her asthma treatment I can never find them. Is there something else I can use to treat her asthma instead of the albuterol solution, like warm salt water.

Hello,

Sorry, no. She needs the broncho dilater. Salt water won't do that. I would suggest finding a new place to store her medication that is way out of her reach - your closet on a high shelf perhaps. Another idea would be to talk to her doctor about switching to an MDI instead of the nebulizer. She should be old enough to handle it now.

Take care and let us know how it goes.
God bless.
