Depends: The symptoms usually are rapid breathing, retraction of the skin between ribs, under ribs, and above the collar bones. The infant may also have some nasal flaring. In addition, the child maybe more fussy than usual, more tired than usual, and not able to eat as well.

Overall growth may also be affected. In addition, there may be apnea, vomiting, cough and discoloration of the skin and nails.
