Hi, my 9 month old is suffering with a fever a cough and a runny nose. I have stripped her down and given her calpol. Her temperature has come down from 38.7 to 37.8 but she is really distressed and keeps crying, she suffers with breathing problems and has an inhaler so I am concerned that the coughing and wheezing is going to affect her breathing and make her worse. I have phoned out of hours and they have told me it can be treated at home but not sure what else I can do.

If you're concerned about her breathing get her an appointment so they can listen to her chest

How much inhaler have you given? I assume its ventolin?

If your at all concerned go to A and E. Im my experience they are much better than OOH for children
