Hi Dr, My daughter is 12 years old and son is 8 years old. They are urinating in bed at night times. How to overcome this issue. My second question is Both of them having cough and wheezing very frequently. Though they are talking asthalin inhaler, is there any home theraphy for both the problems. Thanks in advance for your guidance.

Ans: By 7-8 years, a child should be able to sleep through the night without passing urine. Restrict all fluids including milk to 1 hour before bedtime. Bladder needs to be emptied at 1 hour before and at bedtime. No screen time for 2 hours before bedtime. If in spite of these measures, the problem persists then get a urine routine test done
If wheezing is persistent inspite of Asthalin, then they probably have asthma and will require a steroid inhaler in addition.
