Controller med: Your baby does need to be seen by a specialist. Wheezing at this age may be due to a number of conditions. Crying and increased respiratory effort may be the result of the asthma. If the baby wheezes often, a controller medication such as Pulmicort nebulized solution is used. This is an aerosol form of a steroid. Virtual consultation available via HealthTap.
