Your little nephew's symptoms are typical of asthma.He needs to be on regular asthma medicines now. The new asthma treatments are very effective and safe.Please take him to be seen by a paediatrician.

there'  s a bit of a problem since his father is not even working &  cant afford to take him to doctors but is there anything that we can get him ,may be from the pharmacy in the mean time for his asthma?
