Infant with sound while breathing. Having acute respiratory infection. Taking duolin and flohale. Is long time nebulization safe?

My baby is 7 months old and has had some breathing sounds from the 1st month of birth. Since the last 1 month she is having cold which developed into acute respiratory infection with fever and loose motions. I have been nebulizing her for the last 14 days with 1 ml duolin mixed with ml flohale 2 times a day. The cold n cough is better but not eliminated. Also slight sounds of wheezing are still audible when she takes a feed. What should be the course of action now? I have given her all medicines for cold and is nebulizing for so long safe?

Pediatrician 's  Response

In children beathing sounds may come from nose bock, throat infection ,stridor because of laryngeal problems, wheezing because of bronchospasm. Nebulizations will help to relive bronchospasm by dilating the small airways. So consult your Pediatrician for the examination of your child and her lungs and to assess the need for nebulization and for proper treatment.
