Yeah the pharmacist said it (Pred-mix) keeps for 4 weeks once opened so I was planning on hanging on to it in case things get worse again. It is just so nice that he seems to finally have turned a corner - he just wasn't like my child for more than a month. It's horrible, isn't it?!

I had the same kind if thing as a baby, and still have it now. Turned out to be a kind of Asthma (cough-variant asthma) which was misdiagnosed for years. Something to think about if it continues into childhood....

I'd go back and ask the GP to trial asthma meds, my son Was like this a couple of years ago, he's 4 now. He's still on asthma meds but fingers crossed it seems to be less severe each winter so I'm hopeful he will grow out of it. Sometimes they can just have post viral coughs that last until the end of winter though. The 3 day course of steroid may do the trick too, it's called Prednisolone.

Could be a series of viruses one after the other, post viral "asthma" as previously mentioned (night cough often a symptom of this), reflux (although this does sound more infective). Might be worth getting a chest X-ray or peak flow (if your child is old enough).

Hey just wanted to let you ladies know if you don't get the generic prednisone but the actual redi-pred it lasts out of the fridge until the bottle actually expires so a lot longer then predmix. My kids get croup fairly frequently so I always seem to have some in the cupboard. Comes in very handy to not have to see the doctor everyday
