Asthmatic son has shallow breathing, coughing;oxygen = 92-97; heart rate = 143; temp = <100; hospital or reg. Dr.? Have done treatments at home.

Doc: With oxygen in the 95% range he can see his regular doc as long as your "mommy sense" is comfortable with the wait. Theheart rate is consistent with stress and getting home treatments and well within the safe range for age.If taking fluids well and cooperating with treatments I see no need for you to wait for hours in an ER behind the auto accidents and heart attacks. ...Read more

Congested chest&sticky phlegm in throat, best home remedies to bring quick relief? For adults? For children?

Lots of fluids!: Extra fluids may help. Make your own cough medicine by using 1 part tea, 1part honey, and l part lemon juice. An "expectorant" is an over-the-counter medication which may help to liquify mucous secretions and make them easier to cough up. Don't give honey to babies under one year old. And it goes without saying that a non-smoking environment will be helpful to everyone. Good luck. Lgromkomd. ...Read more

Improve drainage: Decongestants can be helpful, but rinsing the nose with salt water can be even more helpful. There are low-volume sprays available in the drug store such as ocean spray or simply saline. High- volume rinsing with a neilmed bottle or neti pot are often even better.

Honey: Believe it or not, dark honey can be very effective in lightening chest congestion in children over a year of age (and even adults too!).

What are home remedies for non stop coughing in children at night ?

Buckwheat honey: Buckwheat honey has been shown to decrease cough significantly, more than dextromethorphan, which is the active ingredient in all over the counter cough medicines. In my experience, raw honey can be helpful too. Generic supermarket honey (bear jar etc) is worthless. If, however, the problem is asthma, honey won't help. In that case, see your doctor. ...Read more

Hacking cough, loss of voice, wheezing in larynx, when does asthma breath test gets lightheaded. Pt has suffered for 30 years with this. Diagnosis?

May be asthma: Cough and wheeze are symptoms of asthma, but also of other diseases. Getting lightheaded when performing a breathing test is not unusual and does not aid in making a diagnosis. Diseases to consider include also nasal and sinus disease, including allergy; gastric acid reflux, with or without asthma. The problem may also be in the larynx. See a board-certified allergist first and go from there. ...Read more

Loud wheezing whistle like noise when breathing in ? I'm a smoker no asthma what could it be thanks no chest pain or cough just loud noise

See your PCP: Noisy breathing comes from disruption in the otherwise smooth flow of air in your airway and lungs--like the last bit of milkshake sipped through a straw. Disruptions can be caused by simple mucous or more insidious things. First concerns: narrowed airway from inflammation (asthma?), infection or cancer (after all, you are a smoker) need to be ruled out. See your doc asap to be sure. ...Read more

Are tracheal retractions ever normal? With noisy breathing, stomach breathing, and poor feeding(no thrive issues). Been happening for weeks.

Tracheal Retractions: I am unsure of the age of this patient but there is a newborn diagnosis of tracheomalacia or weakness of the tracheal cartilage that causes these symptoms. This is generally resolved by the age of 1. It is important to ensure the baby is feeding well and thriving. It is often more prominent when the baby is on his/her back and when the baby is crying. Follow this along with your doctor. ...Read more
