Hi...Thank you for consulting in Health Care magic. First I want to alley your fears regarding your kid –
By what you quote I feel your kid is having a allergy or wheezing problem. These are the possibilities –
1.     Multi triggered wheeze – Kid might have got wheezing due to various reasons like dust/ dust mites/ seasonal changes/ chill weather/ cockroaches/ cobwebs/ vehicular pollution/ congested environment/ lack of ventilation at home.
2.     Viral associated wheeze – Here usually viral fever and viral respiratory infections will trigger a wheezing episode.
3.     Cough variant asthma – This is a type of wheezing or allergy of the airways where in the only symptoms will be incessant cough and the only way to prove it will be to treat it with inhaled corticosteroids and the response is a proof for it.
Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.
