10 month old is wheezing, deep coughs, stuffy runny nose for a few months now, what should I do?

Get it checked: I'm guessing it hasn't really been a few months, only seemed like that. After all they are only 10 mo old. See if it's been continuous or are there 1-2 week breaks in the middle. If so, it could just be recurrent illnesses or frequent viruses. If it's really continuous, discuss with the pediatrician to see if there is more going on.

I am getting over a pretty bad cold that went down into my chest. My cough mostly better but I still have a wheeze upon expiration, and runny nose.

Wheezing: Wheezing sounds on breathing can sometimes be a sign of asthma, which would need to be treated with special inhalers. You should see your primary care doctor to be evaluated.

Viral illnesses: A lot of "wheezing" you hear is actually from the upper airway and is not wheezing in the sense of asthma. That said, if you are wheezing, you might have some asthma, and it was brought on by the recent viral illness you describe. The persistence of the cough afterwards is common. If you have a history of asthma, see your doctor. If not, be patient, but go to the doctor if symptoms persist.

Wheezing: Some viruses in infants are associated with wheezing, particularly the RSV virus. If he is working hard to breath, has poor PO intake of high fever, he should be checked. The treatment is symptomatic and involves keeping his nasal passages clear, elevating his head and making sure his room is not too hot or dry. All the best.

Respiratory Illness: You are describing a cold and/or flu. A doctor seeing you would also look for other problems such as other infections and pneumonia. It sounds like you are miserable and thus it may be wise to get in to see someone today.

All connected: In Chinese medicine, your lungs are connected to your entire respiratory system, including your lungs, your throat, your bronchial tubes, and your nose. So if your lungs are weak in something like asthma it would be likely that you'd also have a runny nose. It means that you need some strengthening of your lungs, and you should probably quit smoking.

I have Wheezing and chest congestion with runny nose. Cough. Clear mucous. I have had for 3 days. Is it allergy? . I had bronchitis Three weeks ago.

I have Wheezing and chest congestion with runny nose. Cough. Clear mucous. I have had for 3 days. Is it allergy? . I had bronchitis Three weeks ago.

Mgt: Most episodes of bronchitis are caused by viruses which can also trigger wheezing. If you are wheezing, an inhaler called Albuterol is indicated. You may also need to take another medication such as an inhaled steroid, and/or an anti histamine. I would suggest a follow up with your doctor. In the meantime, rest, stay well hydrated, and monitor your temperature.

See doctor!: Your child must be seen right away by a doctor before the difficulty breathing gets worse. The cough and wheezing may be evidence of severe asthma, which can be life-threatening if untreated!

Unrelated: I'd doubt that your current symptoms are related to fluticasone whether shaken or stirred. It appears that you may have developed a sinus infection. See your doctor to find out if you need an antibiotic or not. Usually I would wait about 10 days before prescribing an abx unless the symptoms are getting worse by the day.

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.

The wheezing: It seems you have a viral infection but I am most concerned about the wheezing part, as a viral infection or any urti can trigger asthmatic symptoms. Consult a doctor and treat the wheeze.

This could be: Allergies, but I would recommend a visit to her doctor. With a cough for 4 weeks, she should be examined, so that the proper diagnosis can be made and proper treatment ordered if needed.
