Pneumonia

My almost 2 year old was diagnosed with pneumonia on Monday and he’s been on antibiotics since. His symptoms have greatly improved and he’s no longer wheezing just has a cough, and him and his brother are dying to get outside. It’s finally not raining and I’m tempted to do it but I don’t want him to get really sick again. What would you guys do?

    I wouldn’t risk it yet, if it were me

    Does his ped have a nurse line you can call and get advice from?

    My son had double lung pneumonia with a severe double ear infection when he was just turning one (he is 4 now). My doctor actually suggested taking him out into the cold air for short periods of time a few days after he was on antibiotics and the nebulizer. It was February. As others have suggested, give a call to ask. But, I think as long as the medicine is doing it’s job, fresh air is always a good thing.
