Hello,

Dr. Nomi :

Sorry ,to find about bad health of little one.

Dr. Nomi :

Well,since he showed no improvement even after taking azithromycin for 3 days so he should go to ER.

Dr. Nomi :

Yes,he might be having pneumonia.

Dr. Nomi :

Also as you told he is taking nothing by mouth.

Dr. Nomi :

So again it is worrying condition.

Dr. Nomi :

Also not sleeping at night as he cannot breath properly.

Dr. Nomi :

Infection is extensive.

Dr. Nomi :

Are you okay/

Customer: Thank u so much I have made three trips to drs..and just didnt want to wait thru the weekend...he doesnt wheeze in the day but u can hear it in his chest. He had one bottle from 6am till 6pm but did eatlunch just hard for him to beathe and take botle with congestion
Dr. Nomi :

Are you giving any steam inhlation to him?

Dr. Nomi :

Try giving him steam.

Dr. Nomi :

Wheezing or crackles in chest of kids is alarming sign of increase in infection.

Dr. Nomi :

Nebulization or steam inhalation is must for his congestion.

Customer: what about rsv and shouldnt he b running a high fever with pnemom
Dr. Nomi :

RSV can cause troubled breathing,high fever,chest crackles ,worsening cough and dehydration.

Dr. Nomi :

But you know in even in RSV kids who have difficulty breathing and dehydration are admitted in hospital.
