User:Hello Doctor, My 2and half year old son is suffreing from severe cough and cold for the last 10-15 days. From 2-3 days he is wheezing a lot. My pediatrician suggested nebulization and omnocortil syrup. But he is not responding to even back to back nebulizatons. His xray reports are normal but still my doctor is suggesting admission. What do we do?
Doctor:is this your current medical query?
Doctor:please give a moment to read it
User:please take your time
Doctor:I have read the query
Doctor:please go ahead with the admission
Doctor:are you there?
Doctor:are you there?
User:even though the xray report is normal?
