Question: My son will be 2 years old this month. He has had bronchitis about 5 to 6 times since he was born. He was hospitalized for it once. Our pediatrican prescribed a nebulizer for him to use when he starts to get a cough. He was just starting to get bronchitis again and I gave him his treatments. I asked his doctor if there was any way he is getting asthma. It runs in his father's family. She said he is too young to diagnose. Is there any way that we can figure out if he has asthma or not? Why is he getting bronchitis so easily?
