    I was simply responding to the poster before me. ibuprofen is not recommended for asthmatics without doctors consultation.

    Default Relief for a constant cough???

    No OPs child is not an asthmatic as far as I know. I just thought that if neurofen was bad for asthmatics then it probably shouldnt be used to relieve coughing fits.

    Thanks for your help

    I took DS to the doctors today, he checked his chest etc and he said it was just a cold and to go back on Saturday if he wasn't any better. He recommended some herbal cough relief that you can give your LOs from newborn. I gave him some today as recommended but so far its done nothing. We have had 4 vomiting episodes today, better than yesterday and he even ate a nutella sandwich for dinner (first substantial thing he has really eaten in 5 days). But my joy soon turned to again when about 20 mins ago another coughing fit that ended in everything in his poor little stomach coming back up again.

    I'm to the point now where I'm just not sure what to do now.
    This is everything we are doing for him....
    -Head elevated
    -Cough relief syrup given
    -Humidifier on
    -Ventolin given (Sorry yes he is asthmatic)
    -Pandadol given
    -Daddy gave him some chest physio (we were taught in hospital when he had broncilitius last year)

    I cant for the life of me think of anything else to help him. I hate seeing him coughing like this.

    How long have you had the humidifier on for? Like how many nights? We actually don't use it anymore for my asthmatic DS as we found it to be counter productive. Is your son on a preventative inhaler?

    Hi Peanutmonkey, we have had the humidifier on now for 5 nights.

    He is on a preventer as well as his normal ventolin.

    Personally I would turn the humidifier off, as it could actually be making it worse.

    I will try that tonight. Thanks :-) If he has another bad night I think I might take him back to the doctors.

    That is probably a good idea. The cough can linger on and on though unfortunately. If he is still bad, ask your Dr about possibly using painstop. We were recommended this for DS 2 as he was vomiting every time he had a coughing fit. It worked well, we only used it for 2 nights thought.
