Avatar m tn Coughing can be a complication of sinus inflammation that causes post nasal drainage or a lower airway reflex, both of which cause coughing. A very common cause of coughing if when the upper airway infection triggers lower airways reactivity, such as with asthma. In most cases in a 3 year old, physicians will try a trial course of upper airway treatment (antihistamines and possibly antibiotics, if sinusitis is suspected) to if this controls the cough.
287071 tn?1365192513 We had my 21 month old son to the clinic today b/c he was coughing and after an X-ray (to rule out pneumonia) and nebulizer treatment - we were sent home with steriods and more nebulizer. He never has had the 'seal bark' cough but had been consistently coughing all day. The coughing started at 4am! Now he's sleeping peacefully and hopefully will stay that way. Has anyone out there had a little one with croup? I'm wondering how long it'll last for... Thanks.
Avatar f tn At the beginning of the month I got the upper respiratory virus that was going around so did the kids. all three of the kids stopped the coughing withing a week (so did the co-workers) I have asthma but I cannot get rid of the productive cough.
Avatar m tn Hi there I would go to gp blood in saliva could be due to chest infection,coughing too much thus bursting tiny vessels in throat(not serious) if you have severe gastric disorder it could be coming from gastric is the blood bright red? If so this is prob due to strain from coughing,is the blood brown in colour if so this is old blood and should be checked out ASAP are you on medications that could be making gums bleed thus leaving slight blood in your salvia.
Avatar f tn Does HPV cause coughing.
250701 tn?1320974765 Still coughing my head off. I just don't know about this cough, It has just been lingering and lingering throughout the treatment. It really worries me. Gotta go to the lung Dr. this Thur. I know she is going to say stop smoking. I try and just can't right now. God Bless us all.
Avatar f tn My doctor stated there was a mild decrease in flow in the back but not in the front. He stated he wanted to refer me to a headache specialist to rule out anything else, although my headaches spund like chiari. He said Chiari is not black and white that he operated on an 18 year old with a much larger herniation but no headaches. I will get the actual report but this is where I stand now. I asked him if my wreck and whiplash casused me to become symptomatic.
Avatar f tn Has anyone here had their dog go through heartworm treatment before? My husky is on day 5 from getting his HW treatment (immeticide?) We're not suppose to have him move around too much because the decomposing worms may cause an embolism. He's coughing a a hacking cough today and not eating too much. I'm wondering what to expect next.... I hear the coughing may continue for 2 weeks before he's almost in the clear.
250701 tn?1320974765 My lung Doctor called me in some augmentin because I have been coughing up thick yellow mucus. I just don't know if I can take it on treatment. Does anyone know??

Im worried it may be effecting my baby.
Avatar n tn t stop coughing and my chest hurt so bad, I went in to the ER. After a breathing treatment, steroid, Strong IV anti-biotic, blood work and a Cat Scan the Docs said it was pneumonia. They wanted to keep me but I have 4 kids at home to care for so they sent me home with a steroid, inhaler and cough meds and told me to finish the z-pak. I finished the z-pak about a week ago and still don't feel better.
Avatar n tn I have been using Combivent for about a month together with Asmanex to treat my cough-variant asthma and have had pretty good results. However, the first inhalation of Combivent always triggers a major coughing spell (sometimes it's so severe I almost vomit or my ribs hurt). Are there other bronchodilators that might be easier to inhale and still be effective? Or would using a nebulizer help? I've heard there can be adverse side effects with a nebulizer.
1477811 tn?1321386453 I had 'the cough'. I went to the hospital because I was sure it was a chest infection but I was completely cleared and had no infection and no problems on the chest x-ray. Keep up a high fluid intake. Strangely the best thing that enabled the phlegm to come up for me was laughing (not easy to do on demand). I'm sure the anemia would make the cough so much more symptomatic and scarey.
Avatar n tn My goodness I think we have experienced almost parallel experiences. My son is 4 came home from school coughing, turned into a coughing spasm, took him to the hospital, they gave him a nebulizer treatment & diagnosed w/ an ear infect. treated w/ anti-b. Then a week later, vomiting non stop, and 3 days feeling better, now white poop! Did you ever find out what it was?
Avatar n tn Hello and hope you are doing well. The other causes for long term cough besides asthma are GERD and post nasal drip from allergies. GERD is gastro esophageal reflux disease where the stomach acids come back into the esophagus and spill into the wind pipe causing cough. Treatment with antacids will help neutralize the acids. Post nasal drips can occur with sinusitis and throat infections. Giving up cigarettes will abolish smoker's cough in 90% of people.
1410020 tn?1322299265 I also tend to get the coughing first thing when I wake up, evening and sometimes around the 3am time too. I had cancer treatment last year and was worried that the radiation had done damage to my windpipe but now reading what other people have said I feel it is not from that. I know exactly how you are all feeling and I hope soon one of us will know what to do to fix it.
Avatar f tn t any other medication or treatment for him. Night time coughing is very bad for him. Even after coming off the prednisone and the breathing treatments don't help much. Is there nothing else that can be done.
Avatar f tn My ob gave me a list for medicines to take during pregnancy..
Avatar n tn Brown, I was diagnosed with vitreous detachment, but the optometrist said it would resolve itself in time. I think what caused it was the constant, forceful coughing I did during a recent bout with bronchitis, (??). It has been 6 months, at least and I see no relief. I can't wear my contacts because the lens in the right eye (the one with the problem) only magnifies the blurring.
Avatar f tn Do u take the beneadryl at night or when have u found best time to take it Thnks bbj
Avatar f tn Hi Everyone, Long time no see! Well after a lengthy insurance battle, I was finally approved for 12 wks of Harvoni w/ Riba- not 24 wks of just Harvoni as my Dr. wanted. Whatever, I'll take it! My FibroSpect score was 99 and I'm so friggin exhausted all the time I'm getting desperate. I took my Harvoni and 3 Riba pills yesterday morning, then my 2 Ribas last night. Maybe I was just excited about finally treating, but I could barely sleep.
Avatar f tn He will wake up coughing so bad and I have to give him a breathing treatment asap. It just seems laying down at night makes it worse. Have you gotten a cold since this started? Colds also make asthma worse, when my son has a cold we have to do breathing treatments every 4 hours. Both my kids have asthma they are 7 and 11 years old. My husband also has it.
1171933 tn?1263476758 My Chihuahua has severe bouts of Coughing, Wheezing, Choking, & Breathing problems during the night. It seems to be a little bit better in the daytime. I've had him to Vet's, but after spending $1,000 + he has not changed. Does anyone have any idea what the problem may be?
