she wakes up at night for a horrible coughing session till she vomits, she cries because she gets scared, and then starts to hold her breath every time a cough comes up.

the doctor says its viral , and she has a cold , chest is clear, but why does she cough so bad , what can i do to comfort her , i have tried vicks, steaming , nurofen,

what else can i do ?

:(

"Little Noses" a humidifer and honey! After 1 they can have honey and my Dr. recomends it instead of any cough medicine. My girls love it and it WORKS! lol

Well if your doctor isn't recommending a nebulizer for the for the cough, then the only other way to keep her sinus' clear is with some "little noses" over the counter nasal drops/spray once every 4-6 hours (especially before bed). We also do the delsym cough syrup, only 2mL or try childrens benadril again only 2mL - since they are only two. If none of that works, then tell your doctor you think it might be allergies and then maybe something can be prescribed like a childrens Allegra.
