Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

I need some more information related to his problem of his rapid breathing.

What is the duration of this complaint?

Is there any history of asthma?

What is the child perception at the time of rapid breathing?

What is the opinion of his Pediatrician regarding this problem and what about the investigation?

Is he complaining of shortness of breath at that time?

What type of programs he does watch during that time on Television?

Kindly provide me these details so that I can try to advise you in a better way.

Awaiting for your follow up query.
