Q.

Wheezing

Dr, when a 20 monther has this viral wheezing problem - can you take them out in the evening - like to friends or to the Spur at about 18H30 returning around 20H30? Strange question but I was always told that the evening air is dangerous...as well as the early morning air. Is this true? Thank you

It is definitely true that when a child is wheezing then cold air can aggravate the problem. So the answer is do not take her out at night while she is still wheezing.
