My 3 year old son has had a chronic cough since Oct. 2009 (going on 5 months). He coughs mainly at night, but depending on the day he might cough once or twice, or all day. He has been to numerous doctors (all of which have different opinions). He has been perscribed inhalers for asthma, medications for allergies. Had an unremarkable chest xray. Blood tests (no anemia), a blood allergy test with no reactions.
He has responded to and still continues to cough. Today I did some googling and found that a persistant cough can be caused by acid reflux, so I will be bring that up to the doctor at the end of this month at yet another follow up appointment.
Just wondering if there are any mom's out there who have experienced something like this with their children, and what the results were. I am at a loss, I don't want my poor little guy to cough all the time anymore :(
