User :   am afraid if it turns to asthamatic
Doctor :   most of the times the child over grows
Doctor :   as she becomes older
Doctor :   Do not allow anyone to smoke around your child.
User :   but she is too young to sustain those strong medicines
User :   i think she has reached the core strongness of the medicine
Doctor :   those are not the strong mediciens
Doctor :   the pediatric doses are given to the children
Doctor :   Good hand washing is the best way to prevent many illnesses from spreading.
Doctor :   the pediatric doses doesn harm the baby any way
User :   but inspite of giveng so many medicines and nebulization why is wont come down??

User :   but it is of also no use
Doctor :   Dont worry she grows out of it
