Q.

help please

My son (5yr) was admitted twice last year due to broncho pnuemonia. First time beginning of April and again end of May. From then till now he has not suffered from this because evrytime when the coughing start I''ll give him broncho ped and he''ll be fine after that. Now my worry, is broncho ped fine to be used continuosly like this? I''ve realized that his chest seem to be very sensitive, if he can drink water/coldrink with ice he''ll most likely start coughing. I also want him to start swimming lessons at creche this year, so I don''t know it''s a good idea for him.

It sounds as if your son has asthma. He should be properly diagnosed and treated for asthma. Please take him to see a paediatrician.
