Eight weeks ago my 3 mo. old son came down with a cold. Low grade fever for 2 days, regular symptoms took him to the Dr, he says no big just a cold. A week later he wakes up one night with a terrible cough & couldn't catch his breath(horrifying!) We went back to the dr, they say he has something mimicing asthma do nebulizer treatment with albuteral evry 4hrs. he got better in 3 weeks but still small wheezing, we did chest xrays, they're okay, Thank GOD! We went to a speacialist, he says he has infant asthma that he'll grow out of, put him on pulacort 2x's a day. Helped for 5 days then coughing in weezing again. he's now been sick foe 8 weeks hes get better for 2 or 3 days and then really bad again. I don't know what to do, this just doesn't seem right. Has anyone esle been threw this? Please help, Thank you. And any prayers would be greatly appreciatedAnswer Question
I would keep on top of the doctors. Are they sure he doesn't have RSV or something like that? Does his stomach muscles cave in by his ribs when he breaths? I would call the doctor and let him know that this is not okay for your baby to constantly be like this. You know when something is wrong, the doctors don't know everything. Praying for your little boy.
