Nandini is a seven-year-old girl who comes to the clinic with an intermittent dry cough and noisy breathing, which she has had for two months. Apart from these symptoms, her mother describes her as well. You notice that she is able to talk comfortably, coughing between sentences, and her respiratory rate is normal. There are patches of eczema in the creases of her knees and elbows.
