Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
After cold if your son has developed a wheeze then my suggestion is to consult a paediatrician as he has developed a chest infection.At home you can give him steam inhalations thrice daily which will help in opening up his blocked nose and chest secretions.

Hello Doctor I am suffering from a wheezing sound that is coming from my windpipe and when I cough a small amount of blood comes up. This only occurs when I get this wheezing sort of gurgling sound in my chest. And most time I feel there is something stuck in my chest. Recently I was in the hospital and they performed a bronchoscopy and gastroscopy however the results came up clean. They also did a tests for TB and bronchitis and these also came up clean. Can you please help me I am really worried.

my 17 month old son is wheezing while he sleeps. this is the 2nd night. hes fine during the day, no breathing problems, but last night he tossed and turned all night. he has a cough just when he lays down sounds like it comes from deep inside him. if i put my ear to his chest i can hear a rough wheez everytime he takes a breath. Should I take him to ER right now or is this something that can wait till his doctor can see him in 2 days?

My 2 month old has bronchitis and we were given arithromycn (sp?) yesterday, he has had a double dose and 1 single dose so far, but still wheezing and coughing lots. Also very sleepy. Is this something to be concerned about, should we take him back in?

Ive had bronchitis since Friday. Chest is clearing now although I am still wheezing and feeling "thick" in one place i my right lung which traditionally is the same part that feels sore when I smoke (ex/heavy smoker who, for the last few years has smoked intermittently, around 1 or 2 a day). Haven't smoked for two weeks. I am sore under my right arm and side of right breast. Still congested in my right sinuses and light headed and lacking energy, occasional pain in diaphragm but that could be acid reflux or it could be the bronchitis. Should I visit my doctor?

I had a cold about 6 to 8 weeks ago but the cough won't go away. It's mostly in the morning and sometimes I cough so hard I gag. It feels like I'm trying to cough up something... like I'm congested. Also some minor wheezing afterward.
