Ok, my dd is 1 in three weeks. Over the past 6+ weeks she's had a cough, goes from dry to chesty. We have been to and from the doctor, they can never hear anything on her chest.
On Sunday, she got worse and was diagnosed with croup. We put her on the steroid medication which I assume has helped, her voice isn't as husky but the cough is still there. She's coughs the most when she's having her milk.
She went back to the doctor today (not normal GP) and they want to put her on Ventolin for two weeks, I've decided I'm not happy with this as she has a heart condition and I know it can make your heart race. If in two weeks things haven't improved then they will do a chest X-ray. I'm uncomfortable about the ventolin and will talk to a paed about this.
The GP today also mentioned that she may have been exposed to the whopping cough virus (she's had all her needles) again, I don't agree with this as I have never heard the hoop sound during or after coughing.
She has made herself vomit a few times when coughing but never have I heard wheezing or does it look like she's struggling to breathe.
My parents are worried it's the two cats we have in our house. I'm not sure about that as they have been here since she was born.
She's also teething, weather that has something to do with the runny nose and salvia all sitting in her throat?!
Any suggestions? I'm starting to panic...
