Possible virus: Wheezing, cough and runny nose can be symptoms of a virus. Frequently there is fever as well. If these symptoms have occurred before or become recurrent, this could be early signs of asthma, especially if the child has eczema, food allergies, hayfever or parents with asthma. Wheezing suggests significant lung involvement and warrants a trip to the doctor. ...Read more

What is wheezing? My kids nose whistles when she breathes. She currently has cough n colds.

Wheezing: Wheezing is a high-pitched whistling sound usually made while breathing out but in severe cases even with breathing in. Its due to swelling and constriction of the lining of the tubes in the lung. As the air passes through the narrowed passages, a stained whistling noise is made. Happens with allergies or infection. Nasal congection can cause noise (stertor) but its not wheezing. See your doctor. ...Read more

My 4yo has a "barking cough". 3x today I have given albuterol/atrovent nebs for wheeze. Cloudy drn from nose after 3days clear. 99.5 temp go in when?

Croup: This barking cough may be a sign of croup. Svn treatments with albuterol only affect wheezing from the lungs, not croup which is an inflammation of the larynx. If he has trouble breathing you should seek medical attention immediately since this affects his airway. I would definitely go see your doctor today. ...Read more
