Acute Bronchiolitis-
First do no harm... 
Bronchiolitis is a common viral infection occurring mostly in winters in children less than two years.
It starts as a sore throat and converts into a cough within 2 to 3 days, often accompanied by wheezing and fast breathing. Most children improve in two weeks few may take two to three weeks.
Cough syrup and nebulizers are not effective and often precipitate deterioration. 
Keep baby's nose open, control temperature and maintain hydration.
Frequently visit your doctor and watch for warning Signs during child's illness.
Sometimes, less treatment is more effective...
