Cough in infants: There are many reasons for a persistent or chronic cough in infants. They include acid reflux/regurgitation with possible aspiration, foreign body in airway, recurrent respiratory infections with asthma-like presentation, congenital malformation of the lungs, etc. An evaluation of cough in infants usually involves chest x-ray, swallow study/upper GI evaluation. Chronic cough is not normal..
