  • My son was 2 1/2 when he had bronchitis. They gave him an inhaler and it helped a TON!

  • My son has been sick with all kinds of stuff since he was born we were using a cool mist humidifier til it broke so i went to walmart and they had warm vicks humidifiers that has seemed to help him the best! Did they give him any kind of nebulizer? I know when my son had bronchitis they sent us home with a nebulizer machine and some albuterol. If your son doesn't get better ask the dr about it.

  • Vaporizer. Vicks on the bottom of his feet covered with socks when he sleeps. Elevate his head to help keep his ariways open.
