My 7-month old baby had a cold and was wheezing overnight. We took him to the doctor, and he was nebulized with salbutamol. Does this mean he has asthma?
Babies suffering from cold generally have wheezing while sleeping and it is very common. Sometimes doctors have to remove the mucus through nebulization using salbutamol to ease the baby's cold and cough. It doesn't mean that baby has asthma.
