Bronchiolitis

Common Name(s)

Bronchiolitis

Bronchiolitis is a common lung infection in young children and infants that causes congestion in the small airways of the lung, the bronchioles. It is almost always caused by a virus that spreads quickly during the winter months. Its symptoms are like those of common cold, but later progress to coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing. These can last anywhere from several days to a month. A very small percentage of children require hospitalization, but most get better with supportive care at home. If it is difficult to get your child to eat and his or her breathing becomes more rapid or labored, contact your child’s doctor.
