The : The cause of a chronic cough can be a very tricky problem to figure out in kids or adults. Common causes include: -asthma -gastro-esophageal reflux -allergies -chronic sinusitis -pertussis (whooping cough) -habit cough -pneumonia or other infectious cause such as tuberculosis it looks like your son's doctor has been doing a good job thinking of these problems and trying to rule out each one with the tests and medication trials they have been suggesting. Most of these problems will cause coughing all night as well as during the day except for habit cough. I've attached a website with some information on habit cough which is very common in kids. I hope this helps. ...Read more

I have 3wks baby and his having a cold and it sounds like a bit cough. What kind of treatment should I gave him? I'm also breast feeding having a cold

I have 3wks baby and his having a cold and it sounds like a bit cough. What kind of treatment should I gave him? I'm also breast feeding having a cold

Likely viral illness: It is indeed winter time and colds/flu are everywhere. If baby is not having fever and still feeding, sleeping well, and urinating/stooling normally, no treatment needed. Nasal suction/saline drops for stuffy nose may suffice. If more severe symptoms and baby not feeding well, i recommending seeing his doc asap because he is only 3 wks old. Congrats on the baby and good luck. ...Read more

Is it weird to make a whooping sound?

Is it weird to make a whooping sound?

"Weird"?: It might be surprising, if you're not expecting a "whoop" to come out of you when it does -- and could possibly feel weird. The question is whether these are voluntary "whoops", which can express joy or excitement, or involuntary ones. If it's the latter, it may be a type of tic disorder. And if this troubles you, you could consult with your primary care doctor, or a psychiatrist. Good luck. ...Read more

My child makes a whooping sound when he breathes in. Does that mean he has asthma?

My child makes a whooping sound when he breathes in. Does that mean he has asthma?

No: Asthma is usually a breathing out noise, except in its more severe form when patients wheeze breathing in and out. All abnormal breathing should be evaluated by your doctor-other conditions to consider include inspiratory stridor from croup, tracheomalacia, whooping cough, or a foreign object in the windpipe. ...Read more

My son started coughing real bad and he coughs till he throws up. Nights are worse, he'll cough non stop. Does this sound like whooping cough?

My son started coughing real bad and he coughs till he throws up. Nights are worse, he'll cough non stop. Does this sound like whooping cough?

Could be: Anyone having a coughing fit can cough until they throw up - the medical term is vomiting after coughing - post tussive vomiting. If your child is not fully vaccinated, please check in with your doctor right away. Whooping cough coughs long and hard - and you may not hear the characteristic "whoop.". It is very contagious. ...Read more

I've had a dry cough with no cold symptoms  for 3 wks. I have a newborn and have my whooping cough shot. Im breastfeeding. What should i do?

Not much: There is an infection going around. If you were contagious, you're probably over it by now and any exposure risks have already been there. After a lung infection, the inflammation typically stays for weeks after the infection ...Read more

My one month old baby has a whooping sound without cough for 2 weeks duration, i notice that after this sound as if something irritating her throat. ?

Likely a weak airway: Some infants can develop a rather worrisome breathing pattern that make a lot of noise from their rubbery airways. Some have an airway that is more rubbery than normal & make a crowing sound as they inhale & or exhale. I would have this checked out by your doc early next week. ...Read more

I had whooping cough as a child. I have been coughing (barking sound) for the past 3 days, producing green secretions. Do I need to see Dr?

Often adults may not have a fever but the cough does have a barking quality .if you have secreations inform your doctor . You may need to be treated wi t ...Read more

My 6 week old daughter has been making a whooping sound since birth , mainly when she gets excited . No coughing is involved. But is this normal ?

Rubbery airways: Infants have airways that are very flexible that become stiffer as they age.In some this is quite noticeable, particularly if excited as they draw air in and vibrate the walls.The squeak or croup can increase after birth as the become more active but tends to fade after 6 mo. An evaluation by an ENT that can visualize the airway can confirm the issue. ...Read more

My one week old daughter just coughed should I be concerned? It didn't have a whooping sound nor did it sound like a smokers cough. No high temperature

My one week old daughter just coughed should I be concerned? It didn't have a whooping sound nor did it sound like a smokers cough. No high temperature

Babies cough: And sneeze, and make all kinds of noises. I understand, especially with new parents, that anything out of the ordinary can be scary, but a cough can occur with a temporary aspiration of saliva. If it is persistent, if the baby has a temperature, if there are breathing problems, then see your pediatrician. If not, enjoy your baby more and worry less! ...Read more
