So I've had a cold for the last few weeks, it's eased up and now just have that horrible chesty cough left.
DS has started looking sick, didn't think much of it. He had a slight runny nose and no temp. Then a week go he started to get a dry cough, kept fluids up and it's now developed into a chesty cough as well. We went to see a doctor (not our normal one) on Thursday and he said if the cough got worse to come back, he said his chest sounded ok and everything looked fine (his throat was red, that was the only thing) I walked out feeling like a mother who rushed her child to the doctor for anything and must of looked like a fruit loop.
Yesterday his cough has become disgusting. You can hear the 'rattling' which is probably the wrong word. Mainly after he has a bit of a coughing fit. During dinner he had a coughing fit (which sounded like me a week or so ago) where I coughed so hard it sounded like I was choking. You can hear him try to clear his throat when it's full of crap (if u know what I mean)
So other than me sounding like a lunatic and being overly cautious. When would u take your child back to see a doctor?
What tips can anyone give me to help him out?
We've tried (and still are doing) steaming up the bathroom and sitting in there, we have high ceilings so it seems like such a waste of water.
Propping up the end of cot slightly
Anything to help out would be great. He's fussy but still quite happy. Has his moments, after playing for a bit he gets upset and has to sit down for a cuddle.
And yep if I'm being ridiculous please someone tell me to pull my head in lol
