Q.

Asthma?

Dr my son coughs at night and with emotional upsets...How do I know if he has asthma, he never wheezes? Can he have asthma without wheezing or does these 2 always go together?

A.

Paediatrician

When asthma first starts in young children this kind of cough rather than wheezing is the first sign .Your son almost certainly has asthma and should be seen by a paediatrician.
