Hi...Thank you for consulting in Health Care magic. Greetings from Chennai.

By what you quote I feel what your kid could be having viral associated wheeze or multi triggered wheeze. I have a few questions for you -

Questions:
1. How many days per month does he cough or feel breathless?
2. How many nights per month does his sleep get disturbed due to above symptoms?
3. Does he feel breathless when she runs around or plays with other kids?
4. Are the symptoms when there are seasonal changes?
5. Is there any family history of asthma or any other sort of allergies like skin allergy etc.?
6. Is the cough always associated with fever?

Please revert back to me with answers so that I can guide you better.
