    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    My son isn't quite 4 months old and today found out he has rsv and bronchiolitis w/severe wheezing. They sent him home w/ a nebulizer every 4 hrs but as early as two hrs if needed. The dr said she normally puts them on steroids also but w/ his current immune system it would make him worse. W/ his history w/ pneumonia at birth (nicu) and breathing problems since then I have learned a lot. Although I have not encountered this before, his mucus is pink (use bulb syringe). Use saline drops, Vicks humidifier, and Tylenol when needed. Any advice?
