Default H question from a newbie

Hi everyone!

I stumbled upon this site while doing research on my youngest son's H. He's had persistent respiratory problems (frequent and loooooong lasting colds, wheezing, congestion) since he was an infant. He's had 2 chest xrays in the last 3 months to look for pneumonia. He has a prominent H on his forehead, which is starting involution, as per his dr. He's 9 months old, and the H started growing within the first weeks of his life and reached it's current size around 5 months of age.



Only one specialist mentioned the possibility of an internal H, but that was an ENT I was seeing for myself and happened to have my son at the appointment. It doesn't seem anyone else is concerned this may be the case. (The specialist mentioned it sometimes happened, not that my son might have it.)

Other than stridor (which I've never noticed) are there other signs of an internal airway H that we could look for?

I'm probably unnecessarily worrying, but these respiratory things have been going on for so long. But maybe it's allergy related, or due to the fact that my toddler brings everything home from daycare.

Anyway, nice to "meet" everyone here...

Taking the 'wait and see' approach, for now.
