Hi, don't worry. The prominent interstitial markings in the chest X-ray only suggests that the airway and lung vessel markings, which are normally seen, are more prominent. In small children the most common cause for there prominence is bronchitis or bronchiolitis. In these conditions, there is narrowing of airways with increased secretions within airways, which could lead to difficulty in breathing. Nebulization with Steroids and brochdilators usually help. If there is fever, a course of antibiotic can also be prescribed by the doctor.
