Hello,

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 your kid cough or feel breathless?
2. How many nights per month does your kid's sleep get disturbed due to above symptoms?
3. Does your kid feel breathless when running around or playing 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 to me with answers so that I can guide you better.

Regards,
Dr. Sumanth Amperayani, Pediatrician, Pulmonology

I have had a persistent cough for over 4 weeks. I have a rattle in my chest, but have had 2 xrays and no sign of pneumonia. Now have a head cold or sinus infection with it. I am getting very little sleep at night due to endless coughing episodes. Allergic to penicillin and codeine.
