Is this allergies?

or something else? My boys(9 years old and 4 years old) will wake up during the night coughing a horrible cough and wheezing; they have this during the day but it seems to get worse at night. Could it be allergies or what? We have cats and I have alot of allergies also. thanks

  • see if you can't get them into the doctor. they may have asma (i forgot how to spell it) all three of my girls (9,6,4) have sinus and allergies, but my middle one is on an inhailer for breathing problems. sorry if i got you worried but you really need to get them checked out.

  • I think it probably is......and maybe some sinus issues. Good luck!!!

  • my oldest does have asthma and is on an inhaler for it was just wondering about the coughing and wheezing in my 4 year old and if the inhaler isn't working for my oldest like it should

  • If the inhaler isn't working like it should then the medications need to be adjusted. i have asthma and I wake up occasionally coughs and wheezing at night due to allergies. You need to take them and have them evaluated.
