Brief Answer: no need for ENT now Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Your child is now being treated for asthma/allergy symptoms. This is different from adenoids/tonsils problem. Even if tonsils are removed child can get wheezing attacks due to inherent tendency,allergy,etc. Asthalin is given for wheezing and not for simple cold. Reg montair lc, it can cause some drowsiness,hype active behaviour, sleep problems,abdominal pain etc. It is supposed to prevent wheezing attacks. You can try it out for a few months and see whether there is any improvement. As such there is no need to go to ENT again if your child has confirmed wheezing attacks. God bless Dr Uma
