I think she has croup again but it could be asthma, sinuses, hay fever, dust allergy etc etc I just wish I could get some straight answers.
She's had a cough for 6 weeks now.
2 weeks ago her GP said she had a sinus infection and gave her a course of antibiotics.
It's been over a week since she finished the antibiotics, and the coughs gotten worse.
Last night she coughed from 8pm till midnight, then started crying so I gave her kids chesty cough syrup. That took about 45 min to kick in an she was asleep by 1am but the cough returned by 5am.
Im tired. She's getting very upset too. We've got another appointment this afternoon & I just hope the GP has something better for us. Poor thing.
DO you think a ENT might be able to help us? She does have ear problems so we need to get that looked at anyway. GP also thinks she has hay fever. All her cousins have asthma so I think there's a chance she has that.
This is probably the 5th-6th time she's had croup, she's had 3 sinus infections (so bad musus comes out her eyes) and ear problems to top it all off.
Are there any tests for dust/pollen allergies?
GPs convinced she doesn't have asthma (no weezing) but she's had 3 asthma attacks (that's what I call them anyway) where she coughs & can't breath. All 3 times she's been hospitalized with no explanation/diagnoses.
