CONSTANT HEAVY DROOLING AT AGE 2 1/2
MY SON DOES HAVE A CASE OF ALLERGY/ASTHMA, I DO NEBULIZE HIM ON A WEEKLY BASIS BUT HE SOUNDS MUCH BETTER. THE ONLY THING THAT WORRIES ME IS THAT HE IS STILL DROOLING HEAVILY. IS THAT NORMAL FOR A 2 1/2 YEAR OLD? IS IT A SIGN THAT THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG MAYBE WITH HIS LUNGS?

Drooling is very common in some children at this age for unknown reasons. The drooling invariably stops by itself. This is not a sign of problems with his lungs.
