My 2 and a half year old daughter has always had a cough in the cooler months, she also suffers from croup in the cooler months. This year she is much worst, it's a wet cough that is constant throughout the night and at afternoon naptime. She will cough during awake time but not as much.
I have tried everything, cold medicine, allergy medicine, a humidifier, vicks on her chest back and feet, saline drops in her nose her asthma medicine, pain and fever medicine. Recently we have changed her off cows milk onto
soy milk (which helped for 2 nights but 3rd night on, back to coughing all night). We have seen 4 different doctors all saying her chest is clear and it's post-nasal drip 1 gave her antibiotics but there was no change.
She is not getting the sleep she needs and her coughing is causing the whole family wake up at night, my poor little girl can't take much more and no doctor will help me.
Has anyone else had a child with this problem that could help me
