Hi,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

What is the respiratory rate of the child?
Is he breathing fast?
Further investigations are required to arrive at the exact cause for this. Was a chest X ray done? If so what is the report?

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
