The most common: reason for persistent cough after a viral infection is Reactive Airway Disease (RAD). RAD = mild Asthma, in which a child has spasm of the small airways manifested by coughing, but not audible wheezing or trouble breathing. His pediatrician can diagnose this. Another possibility is " walking pneumonia" from a viral or Mycoplasma infection. Don't give cold/ cough meds under age 6. Take him in. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I recovered from a cold a month ago, but there's still a lingering cough, sometimes when i speak but mostly at night when i sleep. What can I do?
Possibilities.....: This could be related to bronchospasm which can occur after an upper respiratory infection or bronchitis. Both bronchodilator and steroid inhalers can be used to treat this, if present. Another possibility is post-nasal drip and there are effective steroid nasal sprays that can treat this.

My 2yo had a cold almost 3 weeks ago. After he recovered was told his lingering nightly cough was drainage. How long is too long for a cough like this?
A month: Colds and post nasal drip can linger for 3-4 weeks. It is also possible he has caught another mild cold after the last one and iyt looks like one long cold. I would have him rechecked.

Drink plenty of warm liquids, honey with tea, chicken broth , warm chocolate drinks , coffee etc.If you develop fever and your condition worsened, time to go back to your doctor for an exam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
