User - posted on 05/16/2012 ( 2 moms have responded )




My 5year old daughter coughs on and of all the time I am concern it might be something more serious. In the last 6month she has been to the doctor 5 times each time she gets antibiotics and a breathing treatment the cough will go away for week or two and it comes back. Please I need help, she is suffering so much.

My daughters 4 and thats exactly how she started with asthma at one point they thought it was her adonids so maybe something worth looking into.

Could this be asthma or hayfever? If the doctors are giving her antibiotics then it has to be some sort of infection. I went through a similar thing with my daughter and ear infections. She had five ear infections in five months. It seems now she is better all of a sudden no reason why!

If this continues then request a chest xray to see what is going on and why the infection keeps coming back.
