These symptoms are often caused by a cold but may also be caused by an allergy. Cough: Most coughs clear up within a few days and are caused by a viral infection. Sometimes the cough may go on for a few weeks after the infection has gone but there are no other symptoms and this is also harmless. If a cough is really bad, occurs with severe breathing problems or won't go away then there may be a more serious cause.

As well as common viral infections, a cough may be caused by other conditions such as croup , bronchiolitis or whooping cough. These often cause particular sounds or types of cough. A cough that won't go away may be due to asthma or another long-term condition such as cystic fibrosis.

Count the number of breaths in one minute. The breathing rate is too fast if it is more than: 60 breaths per minute for a baby aged months. The normal breathing rate gets gradually less as a child gets older. So, for example, a breathing rate above 30 would be too high for a child aged 6 years but a breathing rate above 20 would be too high for a teenager aged 16 years. Increased effort of breathing. This includes the chest sinking in below the neck and below the breastbone sternum.

The ribs may also look as if they are standing out when the child is breathing in, because the muscles between them are being pulled in hard. Flaring of the nostrils.

The Future of Breathing

The nostrils widen when breathing. This also shows that more effort is needed for breathing. A grunting sound is made when breathing out. This is the body trying to get more air into the lungs. The skin may seem pale or a bluish colour.

The lips and tongue may also appear blue. These changes mean your child isn't getting enough oxygen from breathing. Low oxygen levels may cause your child to become very tired and difficult to keep awake. This is a high-pitched noise when your child breathes in. It is caused by an obstruction to the flow of air in the upper airway.

One reason may be that our culture often rewards us for stifling strong emotions. Girls and women are expected to rein in anger. Boys and men are exhorted not to cry. What happens when you hold back tears, stifle anger during a charged confrontation, tiptoe through a fearful situation, or try to keep pain at bay? Unconsciously, you hold your breath or breathe irregularly. Body image affects breathing, too. A "washboard" stomach considered so attractive in our culture encourages men and women to constrict their stomach muscles.

This adds to tension and anxiety, and gradually makes shallow "chest breathing" feel normal. The act of breathing engages the diaphragm, a strong sheet of muscle that divides the chest from the abdomen. As you breathe in, the diaphragm drops downward, pulling your lungs with it and pressing against abdominal organs to make room for your lungs to expand as they fill with air.

As you breathe out, the diaphragm presses back upward against your lungs, helping to expel carbon dioxide see figure. Shallow breathing hobbles the diaphragm's range of motion.

Reason to Breathe

The lowest portion of the lungs — which is where many small blood vessels instrumental in carrying oxygen to cells reside — never gets a full share of oxygenated air. That can make you feel short of breath and anxious.
