Your child seems to be suffering from allergic bronchitis.he may treated with antihistaminincs, some bronchodilators like asthaline. some anti inflammatory and antipyretic. Along with all these he can also be nebulised with some bronchodilators and often with some steroids inhalation if wheeze do not respond.
he should also be fully investigated for any infection or any allergic phenomenon.
