Q.

funny breathing(4 months old)

Why is my daughter breathing like this, there is a grrh sound when she breathes, especially at night, you can even feel it when you have your hand on her back, there is this grr sound , I have already taken her to a GP and he gave me a cough mixter, antibiotics, allergex,Paracectamol, nose drops, but this sound does not get any better, its like she'  s blocked in the nose ,

Her breathing is not relaxed, I mean she does not inhaaaaaaaale and exhhhhhhale, its quick short hales, and mixed with these grrh sounds , i really feel like something is not right with my child, please help

You have not given me your daughter's age. Her symptoms may well, be due to a very blocked nose. She is not getting any better on all these medicines.It would be best to ask an ENT specialist to see her as she may have enlarged adenoids.

DONT GIVE YOUR CHIILD THAT MEDICATION COUGH SYRP IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR BABIES UNDER 2 AND NEITHER IS ANTIBIOTICS
MY CHILD HAD IT TO BUT IT WENT AWAY WHEN SHE TURNED SIX MONTHS AS LONG AS THERE IS NO DIFFICULTY IN BREATHING SHE SHOULD OUT GROW IT
GIVE SALEX DROPS IN THE NOSE THAT IS SAFE

Hi,

My son had the same problem and i know the worry you have. It will come right with time ( the short breath thing - quick hales) i know it looks funny too when you watches his chest hey? Maybe a baby thing. But about the Grrr sound i am not to sure. Rather take him back for checkup.

good bye
