My son is 1.5 yrs. He has had a rattle in his chest for the last year off and on. Every time he sees the doc they prescribe antibiotics and breathing treatments of albuterol with a nebulizer. This time, he finished meds, still has rattle and every time I give a breathing treatment he clears up for about 20 mins and it comes right back. Is the albuterol actually doing anything to fix the problem or is it just a temporary relief from the symptoms? I feel like I'm giving him meds that aren't doing anything.
