I have a 9 year old who has suffered with this disturbing barky croupy cough everytime she gets sick. Her ped gives her prednisone which has stop working. She was given an inhaler which also dosent work. We have tried humidifiers and home remedies and nothing seems to shake her cough. She recently broke a blood vessel in her throat from coughing so hard. Her ped says "thats just her". She doesnt sleep at night. Although she feel fine. When ever she goes to dance and school, everyone stares at her and wonders why I sent her to dance and school like this. I am at my wits end and I cant keep her home for 3 weeks everytime she gets a cold. Am I stupid for taking her to see an ENT even though her ped didnt refer us? Someone help??
