my beautiful baby girl has a horrible horrible horrible cough, alongside a great 101.4 fever to top it off. The doctor won't diagnose her with asthma because she is too young but she does have to have nebulizer breathing treatments everytime she gets this way...it's so crazy, but whatever works. However, this time she hasn't gotten any better, I given her tylenol, children motrin....and have even gone to crazy lengths and given her childrens cough medicine that i believe to be the worst thing ever, but when she doesn't sleep at night and wakes up at least 7 times crying because the cough is so bad, i'm left with not other choice. I only gave her the childrenscough medicine once, but don't think it's the solution...after all..there is a reason your body wants you to cough right?. The doctor made her get x rays, and tested her for strep,flu,perstussis..and all came back great..that doesn't mean her cough is gone. Does anybody have any suggestions?
