Bronchiolitis

Mild cold symptoms that develop into a persistent cough, and fast, laboured breathing a couple of days later.

Asthma

Frequent wheezing and a cough that's worse at night. Your child may also have allergies or a family history of allergies.

Pneumonia

A bad cold, a persistent worsening cough that's bringing up mucus, a fever, wheezing, and fast, shallow breathing.

Allergies

Congestion, a runny nose, sneezing, coughing, wheezing, and red, itchy, watery eyes.

Croup

A deep cough that sounds like a bark, cold symptoms, a fever, wheezing, and a loud, high-pitched rasping sound when breathing.

Food allergy

A dry itchy rash on the face, kneecaps and elbows, and allergy symptoms after your child consumes a trigger food. Symptoms may include itching and swelling of the face, lips and mouth, a nettle rash (hives), watery eyes, a runny nose, and possibly vomiting, diarrhoea, wheezing, or difficulty breathing. If your baby is less than six months old, he's unlikely to have a food allergy.
