My daughter is 5 1/2 months She's had a crackling/rumbling
Patient :My daughter is 5 1/2 months.
She's had a crackling/rumbling noise in her chest or lungs for a few weeks now.
Doesn't seem to bother her, sometimes she coughs, and she's been crankier than ever.
What could this possibly be?
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history of your daughter suffering from crackling/rumbling noise in her chest or lungs for a few weeks. It looks that your daughter is comfortable.There is coughing sometimes.
The possible causes are:
Retention of mucus due to inability to expel.
I would advise you the following:
Clinical evaluation, Some investigations like X-ray chest and blood work should help to get a appropriate diagnosis and a plan for treatment.
I hope this answers you query.
