Your child's doctor will show you how to use a nebulizer.Pulmicort Respules® is provided as a strip of five small plastic containers with sealed caps. Each container holds one dose. The strip of containers is sealed inside a foil pouch.Wash your child's face after using the Pulmicort Respules® to avoid skin irritation.Read and follow the patient instructions that come with this medicine.
