My nephew has also suffered from wheezing for years – he’s 11 now. He was allergic to dust so his Mum finally got rid of all the carpets in the house, she changed his bedding to allergy free and cleans the floors with a steam mop 3 times a week. It really works, he is so much better and doesn’t wake up with red eyes and breathing problems anymore. Good job they don’t have pets because he starts again when he comes to my house with our two cats! Good luck with your son, hope his condition improves and you discover what is causing it soon.
