How can I help my daughter?

My daughter is having a hard time breathing at night for the past couple of days, during the day she is ok. Does anyone know what the problem could be?.... could the air be too dry? I always keep a wet towel on the radiator. What else can i do to help her breath normal? She is 18 months old

  • Number 1, Take the towel off the radiator! Never put stuff on or near the radiator!
    Number 2, Take her to the Doctor! Irregular or difficulty breathing is most definitely not something to mess with or take lightly! Take her in ASAP!

  • I agree take her to your doctor she may need a nebulizer treatment with simple saline that will open her airways , if you want to purify the air in her room then buy a humidifier and place in her room at night let it start to run at least a half hour before her bedtime and that will help , but please take her to her pediatrician , it is serious
