Your baby son falls into the group of young children who have recurrent wheezing. There are many causes for wheezing at his age and it is very difficult to decide whether your baby has asthma at this stage or not. The other very common cause is 'recurrent viral wheezing'. It is particularly difficult to distinguish betwween recurrent viral wheezing and asthma in a baby of 7 months.His symptoms are not due to teething. With your history of asthma it is very likely that your baby does have asthma.What is needed is firstly that he is seen by a paediatrician with experience in respiratory illnesses in children.For this reason your baby son should be seen by a paediatric pulmonologist. Once he has been seen by the pulmonologist you will be given the most likely diagnosis for your baby's wheezing problem and he will be placed on the correct treatment [which is definitely not antibiotics or cough mixtures].
