Q.

Phlegm in lungs

My son is 8 months old, and have been struggling with URI and phlegm since birth. I tried different kind of milk, but there' s no change. We tried alot of different cough syrups and broncholators. We even had to take him to hospital a few weeks back, because it seems like he couldn' t breath and his chest was /is wheezy. What must I do? Do i take him to see a pneumologist or what.

Yes, the time has indeed come for your baby to be seen by a paediatric pulmonologist.
