Are you able to listen to his lungs when he is done running around? Just put your ear up to his back where his lungs are and listen as best you can. If you can hear anything other than him breathing I would get him seen.

I was able to listen to his lungs the other day and they were clear ( I have a stethescope so I am pretty confident that they were clear) He is still doing this. I went to a meeting today and he was running around with other kids that were there, he began to cough so bad that he had to sit down to regain his breath.. I think I will call our ped tommorrow. It is really worrying me
