should i be worried?

my son is four months and has this real rattle in his cough and yesterday i noticed that he was wheezing when he breathed and he breaths kind of fast? when i was born i was put on a nebulizer because of asthma do you think its possible he has the same problem? and could the wheezing maybe just from the cough? he does just fine when he is sleeping but when he wakes up is when he has trouble!

  • You need to take him to the Dr today. Wheezing in an inafant is a red flag, he may need breathing treatments.

  • Yes, It's very possible. I have asthma, and it's gets worse when I have a cold or viral or bacterial infection. My son recently had RSV and now he gets cold that vary and he needs a nebulizer. I would bring him in to doctor right away! I was so happy that my husband and I kept going into the doctor when they finally did something. It starts as a cold and can get worse, especially this time of year. I wish you the very best and that your son gets better soon!
