My son has a throat infection where the doctor said it may turn into whooping cough. Should I use a nebulizer or humidifier?

My son has a throat infection where the doctor said it may turn into whooping cough. Should I use a nebulizer or humidifier?

Yes: I usually find a humidifier or a vaporizer very beneficial for children will cough scalds and throat issues. Moisture helps soothe the airway and thin secretions. Use either a nebulizer or humidifier but put it right next to the child and close the door. It's really a matter of particle size. In a pinch you can take a groupie child into the bathroom and steam up the bathroom. ...Read more

Why does my throat hurt more when i lay down/sleep? Wake up in pain and coughing. I have been doctoes and said it was a viral throat infection .

Reflux may be cause: Some throat pain, hoarseness, and spasmodic coughs are caused by ge reflux. This occurs when the highly acidic contents of the stomach slosh up into the less-protected esophagus - and higher. Because this is more likely to occur when you lie down, it's worth considering. Try not to eat late in the evening. Avoid alcohol, chocolate, heavy or fatty meals; see if it makes a difference. Talk to doctor. ...Read more
