My 14 year old daughter has been sick from Febuary to now still May. At first in February the first 4 weeks she had beeen coughing bad and all the common virus symptoms. We took her to the doctors on the 4th week and they said it was bronchitis we left with an antibiotic. We were on it for a week and after she finsihed the dose she still wasn’t feeling well. March came and we took her back to the doctors and she was diagnosed with pneumonia and was given steroids and were on those for about 2 weeks and given a big dose. After she finished treatment she still wasnt feeling well and her cough was still bad. So a week later we went back to the doctors and they said they couldn’t do anything so we went home. A week or 2 weeks later we went back to the doctors, she had stuffy nose, couldn’t breathe and still the cough. She was then diagnosed with a Sinus infection. She was on antibiotics again and they helped for the most part. Then it was April and the first week she felt fine. The next week it was allergies. The third week she was starting to feel sick again. She had the cough bad again and she had lots of mucus in her throat. She throw up some mucus. We gave her nasal spray and that seamed to help. The next week she was really tired, went to bed early and was still tired in the morning and all day. The following week the tiredness left and she was beginning to feel good again. Then the last week of the month until now she has gotten sick again with another virus. She is stuffy in her nose and that is causing her to have trouble breathing and she has another bad cough. Her cough sounds like a seal and a dog. We are treating her with her nebulizer since she also has asthma and her asthma gets worse when she is sick. Her cough is so bad that she coughs from moving to fast or long and talking to long and gets out of breathe.
On a side note like i said she has asthma but her daily inhalers help. She has allergies but she has medicine that does help.
I’ve tried to searching on line what could be wrong but there are so many illnesses. Should i take her back to the doctors or go see a specialist? Do you know what might be wrong, i hate seeing her like this?
