Brief Answer:
Possibility of viral rhinitis is more.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Health Care Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Possibility of viral rhinitis is more in his case.
And this can cause bronchitis. And this may be the reason for breathlessness.
So give him antihistamine and anti inflammatory drugs.
Also give him inhaled bronchodilators.
If still not improving than consult doctor.
Hope I have solved your query.
I will be happy to help you further.
Wish you good health. Thanks.
