my 15 month old has been having wheezy episodes every month for the last four months.. i went to the dr and he was given prednisalone for 3 days and salbutamol to inhale. My GP says it is a viral infection. But i am really worried that he is wheezy often and what could this lead to?

My daughter went through several rounds of Prednisalone and antibiotics before ending up on on a daily inhaled steroid, and Singulair at night. She was suffering from bronchospasm, which the Prednisalone wasn't clearing up completely. About a week or so after going off of it, her symptoms would return.

He may have had a bronchial infection.....which would cause the wheezing. I'm surprised your doctor didn't give you more info.
