I have a 9 mth old little boy who was born at 33 weeks last Dec. He has had a lung infection for quite a while now that did not respond to Pediapred. He can't seem to get an ear infection without starting wheezing too. His ped said it was just a virus that centralized in his lungs. So after 4 rounds of antibiotcs we finally did a chest x-ray. It showed nothing. But the wheezing could still be heard across the room.
Since starting solids I have noticed his daipers have a "greasiness" to them. The bowel movement does not stick to his bottom at all. It is very dark in color, not yellow.
His "spit up" is very think. We have been doing breathing treatments with albuterol but this also did not help. We did try the liquid albuterol straight and it seemed to help. Not sure if this was just because his cold is now gone, but I was glad to hear the wheeezing had stopped.
I thought the problem was due to his prematurity and he will be asthmatic, but now I am not sure. We are checking with family memebrs about history, but so far no one seems to know anything.
I may be premature in posting this message. I am just not sure what else the problem could be. Thanks for your help and suggestions
