Depends: Just like anyone, there are causes of coughing and the cough is treated the same way. A productive cough is treated with expectorant to help with clearing of secretion, and if with allergy, treated like allergy. Bronchospasms is treated with the inhalers. If there is already co2 retention, be careful with narcotic cough suppressants to avoid severe sedation.

Depends: Sarcoidosis is a problem where several different parts of the body develop granulomas (small balls of immune cells). It's impact depends on where these are. If they are in the lung, women can not get enough oxygen and that can affect the baby. Treatment is usually steroids which can increase the risk of cleft palate and diabetes. Overall it is better to treat than not to treat.

Call Your Doctor: Your child needs to be examined to determine the cause of their symptoms. Some possibilities include a cold, allergies, bronchitis, asthma and pneumonia. The only way to know if it is serious is for your pediatrician to examine the child.
