Hi does anyone have experience of bronchiectasis in a child? My son is 4 years old and since he was about 2 and a half he has been suffering with chest infections and has been on antibiotics many times throughout the year. When he's unwell he coughs so much it makes him gag and will bring up mucus when he's sick from coughing so much. He's doesn't get breathless or wheezy tho. He treated with asthma medication but this doesn't seem to improve things. Just wondered if his symptoms are typical of bronchiectasis or if this condition has much worse symptoms. Thank you for reading.
