Here we have discussed those disorders which should be noticed by parents and should be treated properly by a physician.


Wheezing is a sound created during respiration and is pointer to some infection or/and obstruction in the nasal passage, chest and lungs. There is a feeling of choking and dyspnoea (breathlessness), tightness of chest—especially on lying down, more so in the morning and at night, use nebulisers or nasal drops to clean the respiratory tract. In some cases antibiotics like Ampicillin, Amoxycilline etc may be required but dosage must be guided and determined by a doctor and never of your own.

In any case, another attack should be warded off. Spasms may be caused while dusting, cleaning carpets, furniture’s, walls and floor, by odours arising from the kitchen, by gas leakage, smoke/smoking. Complaints is more commonly found in children, and if they are allergic to some triggers, they have to be taken care of properly
