Sort of, and yes: Paraplegics have little or no sensation during sexual activity. Both men and women can have leg spasms, which make body positioning challenging.

Do older children get bronchiolitis? Most of what I'm reading says younger children get it, but my 6 yr old was diagnosed w/it after ER chest xray.

Yes: Actually, even an adult can get bronchiolitis, although that is very unusual. But children can certainly get it, especially if they have underlying respiratory conditions like asthma of cystic fibrosis, or if they live in areas with lots of respiratory irritants like smoke or dust.

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.
