Q.

15 month old with cold

hi Doc, my 15 month old boy has been coughing for almost 2 weeks now. It happens mainly after running around playing and sometimes at night. And then you can hear that he needs to clear his throat. His nose is sometimes runny during the day and gets blocked at night. No fever and he still eats well. Im worried about TB, what will be the symptoms? Must i take him to the doc? The thing is,he is still his happy self. Thank you Doc

This may simply be the result of a virus infection and your son's recent cold, but also may be the first signs of asthma in your baby. He has not got a fever so it is unlikely that he has an infection now.It would be best to ask your doctor to see your baby.
