Q.

Wheezy chest

Morning Doc

My son is 17 mnths old and it seems he is teething with his chest, which i pick up only now recently. At the moment he hasnt developed a bad cough as before but he is wheezy, what can i use to ease the wheezing.

Thanks

Your son's wheezy chest is not due to his teething.It seems from your question that your son has been wheeezy before. It is possible that he has asthma. It would be best for you to take him to see your doctor.
