Monitor: The sound may be transmitted from the upper airway if he is congested, but expiratory sounds may also be associated with wheezing. If he is breathing normally and improving without fever, please see your pediatrician for follow up. Provide clear liquids and treat fever. Nasal saline may be used to relieve congestion.
