My 20 month old daughter's in the hospital with difficulty breathing right now. She's breathing fast and wheezing a lot. Breathing treatments help a little bit, but not dramatically. This is her second night there. If your child has had bronchiolitis, how long did it last and how was it treated? Does anyone know the difference between this and asthma? (I'm asthmatic and it looks like she feels the same as I do w/an attack).

My kids have not had it but growing up I got it at least twice a year. It was usually accompanied with the flu or pneumonia. Ya it sucked. Anyway I would be really sick for 4-5 days and slowly get better. After 2 weeks be back to normal.
Asthma is different because it is caused by a bacteria so it is totally different, but the short term affects are the same. It does see same kinda thing to your bronchial tubes
