    Default DD is STILL coughing.

    Hi I thought I would reply. My daughter has bronchomalcia, part of her airway is not properly formed. She has always coughed for hours on end with even the slightest cold. Often mistaken for asthma or croup the cough of BM is a bit more brassy and tight then the seal bark cough of croup. I recommend seeing a pead resp specialist as most other health prof have barely herd of it before.

    Default DD is STILL coughing.

    Our whole family including DD has whooping cough, get the GP to do a swab.

    We have all been cough really bad for over 2 months, unfortunately there is nothing you can do for it, we have tried pain killers, cough syrups even home remedies and tea. Nothing helps!

    The public health department contacted me when we all tested positive and said that our immunity will be next to nothing and if there is a flu or cold ect going around we will no doubt get it and she was right!!! We keep getting a cold as well. I had laryngitis for a month too.

    We all lost our voices for a week, 3 weeks on we still sound terrible!!!

    We are all still very sick but unfortunately we have to just "suck it up"
    DD is 3 so luckily not a bub, but it has still hit her hard. She is usually extremely active and never sits still. Lately all she has wanted to do is lay in bed and read or play on her iPad
