Cause of Wheezing

Hi All,

I have 11 months old kid suffering from wheezing. He is often affected by dry cough after that wheezing starts. We don't know the actual cause of this problem. He got admitted twice in Child trust hospital, chennai. He is good for 1 week and again the problem starts. Please let me know the actual cause of this. And how to get rid of this wheezing problem.



Thanks in advance,

welcome to healthcaremagic
your baby is having recurrent chest infection
as the kid is already under treatment and hospitalised twice the detailed tests must have been done
immunological deficiency /cardiac problems should be evaluated

stay in touch with paediatrician constantly and follow advice
wheezing most probably due to respiratory obstruction mostly found in bronchopneumonia
hope your kid be all right soon
