Q.

6 month old coughing

Hi Doc

My 6 month old have been sick for the past 2 days.
He coughs so much and cries when we does that. It sounds like a loose cough he has the flu as well. Is there anything i can give him.
When he cries he struggles to breath and you can''t even hear the crying noise. He has a fever of 37.5. please help. Should i take him to doctor?

Regards concerned mum.

Your baby has the symptoms of a virus chest infection called bronchiolitis. I am concerned that he appears to be struggling to breathe at times. Please ask your doctor to see him or take him to an after hours emergency paediatric unit.
