My two year old son has had a dry cough for nearly two months now, and his ped says it's a bronchitis infection or so and gave him ventolin syrup. The cough subsided, but seems to have returned and mostly at nights. It's quite disturbing. Any leads? Kc

I have problems with my daughter (she is now 8) with nighttime coughs in the colder months of the year, and it is a form of asthma. We now put her on Singulair (a preventative) over the cooler months (she doesn't need it in warmer weather) and it seems to have solved the problem! Perhaps check with your doctor if this cough could be asthma if it seems to be ongoing.
