Maybe: If your baby had wheezing with his rsv, he has a greater chance of developing asthma; however, the RSV itself can cause wheezing for several weeks, and can lead to wheezing with future colds for about 6 months to a year; he may then outgrow the whole thing. The wheezing increases his chances of developing pneumonia. Usually the strep is unrelated., esp if he is in daycare.
