Dear Concerned
Toddlers usually don't have the typical asthma signs like adults - they tend to have a dry, hacking, sometimes wheezing cough. They may show muscle retraction around the ribs and have flaring nostrils. They may have rapid breathing while they sleep and usually get quickly tired when playing. If you put your ear on the chest you will hear a wheezing sound.
