Q.

wheezing

hello,
my child of 18 months has a permanent phlemmy cough in the winter months and is on seretide pump. It works but now he has a snotty nose and his voice is all funny and is coughing more. He had the RSV virus in April. Do you think it is gone now or is this still part of that? Also my husband keeps nagging me to put the air conditioner on in the house to warm it up as he seems to think there should be some warmth in baby''s room. I have nerver warmed the room as I feel those things dry the air out and when she gets up in the morning she is gong to have to go out in the cold...what do you think? Thanks for all your advise it is really appreciated.
