1 doctor agrees
In brief: Supportive
Supportive care means close monitoring of the infant for any signs of breathing problems or shortness of breath (rapid breathing more than 60 times a minute, labored breathing etc.
). The doctor may decide to hospitalize the infant and administer oxygen. Other treatments may include nasal suction and nebulized albuterol. Inhaled steroids and antibiotics are not effective.
