Pulmonologist 's  Response
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
In my opinion, you should consult pulmonologist first and get done clinical examination of respiratory system.
If pulmonologist heard rhonchi and wheezing then bronchitis is more likely and you will need inhaled bronchodilator and inhaled corticosteroids (ICS).
But if he found crepitation and crackle then you may need chest x ray with abdominal shield (to prevent radiation exposure to your baby) to rule out pneumonia.
You may need higher antibiotics too.
So don't wait, consult pulmonologist and discuss all these.
Don't worry, with appropriate drugs, you will be alright.
Hope I have solved your query. I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
