Parents have a lot to do with this. A lot of parents demand treatment for every cold or cough a kid gets time and rest are all that is needed. For the doctor to prescribe an inhaler or antibiotic the doctor needs to diagnosis the ailment as something that will allow him/her to prescribe the inhaler or antibiotic.
