My DD has had this cough for about 2 months, or maybe more now. It comes & goes in severity but is generally worse at night. Sometimes crying & coughing herself sick. Started out as a cold/runny nose then went straight to her throat & chest. It's dry now but she coughs more when running around or crying. She's had a history of croup when younger. She is well & healthy otherwise.
Already been to Drs twice (different Drs) & have tried predmix, ventolin puffer in case of asthma. Predmix maybe helped a little but neither has made a huge difference.
I've made another Drs appt for Thursday as I'm just not happy with "its a virus cold" type of answer. Something is not right, this isn't normal surely?
Has anyone else experienced similar? What should I be asking the Dr to get answers - does she need a chest xray? antibiotics? Blood test? Allergy test? a paediatric referral?
Totally at a loss what to do & getting a little concerned here
