My 23mth old DD has had a cough for almost 2 mths. Every couple weeks I took her to our regular GP but got told to wait it out. After it seemed to worsen yesterday, followed by an almost 39deg fever overnight, I took her to a diff GP today who checked her out, said she has an ear infection which was causing the fever, but there were no signs of asthma or bronchitis, and it was just a cough. We got some antibiotics but mainly for her ear infection.
Anyway to the point, she's coughing so badly that she can't sleep! Every few minutes she starts coughing and hacking, and it causes her to wake up and cry. She had two pretty bad coughing fits that made her vomit. I've got the Vicks vaporizer going in the bedroom, panadol for the fever, Vicks baby balsam on her chest and back, Vicks on her pillow, she's elevated with pillows to help with her breathing.. But my poor baby is still coughing like crazy and unable to sleep for longer than 10mins at a time! Anything else I could be doing to help her?
