Breath Sounds In Children?
Excuse me. I want to ask my 15-month-old child to get hot at first and it seems to be inflamed … I have brought it to the midwife and given medicine, thank God, the heat went down … But when the breath sounds like a radio, look for frequency and at night the fever starts again … but in the morning no … I brought it again to the pediatrician’s doctor and it turned out that my child was having trouble speaking out … because I was shocked and advised to be yawned (nobulle) and given medicine then hurriedly rushed so I didn’t have time to consult … in the recipe there was epexol and sporetic antibiotics … after 1 day of drinking my child’s breathing is faster (if the breathing moves the stomach up and down fast) … but the next day the breath returns to normal and coughing up phlegm … for 4 days the drug is taken and the antibiotics are gone. .. Coughing still has phlegm and his breathing is still appearing radio looking for frequency … what I’m asking is if it’s tightness or is there an indication of asthma … please explain about breathing like radio looking for frequency to start …. What other steps do I take .. Yesterday, to the pediatrician who was looking for another pediatrician … please advise
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically asthma is rarely diagnosed in children under 5 years of age (because examinations to diagnose asthma are very difficult to do in children under 5 years). Shortness of breath accompanied by sounds of breath (snoring sounds) in infants and toddlers can be caused by many other conditions besides asthma, such as bronchiolitis (the most common cause of coughing with shortness of breath and snoring in infants and toddlers), allergies, or other diseases such as pneumonia, cystic fibrosis, pertussis.
If your baby is experiencing shortness of breath and breathing sounds again, you should take your child back to his child's doctor before. Taking the child to the same pediatrician will make it easier for the doctor to monitor the treatment and development of the child's illness. The therapy provided can also be more sustainable than you take your child to another doctor. If you feel shortness of breath the child is heavy (very fast breathing, you see the child is very difficult to breathe, lips turn blue, cold skin, etc.), immediately take him to the hospital for treatment as soon as possible.
For now, some things you can do include:
Place a humidifier in the child's bedroom
Raise the child's sleeping pillow so that the sleeping position is more upright
Rinse the nose in children using saline
Avoid exposure to cigarette smoke and air pollution around the child
If there is a fever you may give a fever reliever such as paracetamol
Give more drinks / fluids for children
You can also give honey to children if there is still a cough
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
