Coughing mucus children

Common Questions and Answers about Coughing mucus children


Avatar n tn Try taking an allergy medicine for a week and see if that helps. It doesn't sound like you have any mucus, so the cold medicines wouldn't work. My children have allergy related athsma. They rattle when they sleep and mostly just when sleeping or exercising. They also have a cough. I even had one child who always sounded like her nose was stuffy and had bad breath, that went away with the allergy medicine. Singular really helped my children.

Avatar n tn My husband has had coughing and mucus for two + yrs. On and off. With los of breath and dizzyness. In the last month it has gotten much worse. It is almost constant. Night and day. He will take a supressent at bedtime and it does help. He has Prostate Cancer in remession now. His numbers were 27 before pinpoint rad. With a Gleason score of 10. I'm wondering if it may have metastesized . His psa# are way low. .01 He is anemic and wating results of blood work and latest PSA. YES!!
Avatar m tn Hi, an important aspect about pertussis or whooping cough is vaccination. The best way to prevent pertussis is to get vaccinated. There are vaccines for infants, children, preteens, teens and adults. Researchers agree that refusal to vaccinate children against whooping cough might have played a role in the 2010 pertussis outbreak in California. The whooping cough vaccination is now recommended for all pregnant women between 28 and 38 weeks pregnant. Regards.
Avatar n tn My son was diagnosed with asthma when he was 3 months old, since then he has been having problems with excessive mucus to the point where he vomits in excess. I want to help him but the doctors that he is seeing only seem to sedate him. He is in school now and needs some medications that won't make him so tired. We have tried a number of different types of medicine but most of them give him headaches. Are there any medicines on the market that are good to stop the coughing and vomitting?
Avatar n tn My throat is killing me, my head hurts, and I can't stop coughing (sometimes producing mucus). I have been taking Tylenol cold but it just masks it for 4 hours or so. What else can I do to get better? I have two other children to take care of and my husband is having surgery in two days!
Avatar f tn For those who have had children how long after you lost your mucus plug did you go into labor? I lost mine this morning I'm only 33 weeks. I'm a ftm and a bit nervous. I'm not cramping/contracting but had a restless night and have felt round ligament pain for the past two days.
Avatar m tn Although I had been through a procedure called FESS in 2001, which drained my thick heavy mucus from head. Afterwards, it's not deposited but draining. What I feel that before this recent coughing, the mucus was bit thicker and was draining to my stomach; but since last two months it becomes thin mucus (a little thick like saliva) and draining into my lungs. Due to that I have been suffering from acute coughing, which has now become chronic.
326352 tn?1310997895 I thought they already had a formula of Zyrtec for kids? My boys started zyrtec when they were 6 mos old. It was a liquid. Ds had to stop the zyrtec after a while b/c it made his eczema flair as it dried him out way to much. DDAVP is desmopressin acetate sometimes it's rx'd for bedwetting or nose bleeds. Ds had his rx'd for both. He started his shots this past Nov. and he turned 9 that Sept.
Avatar f tn After coughing at times, I have had some small amounts of stringy mucus (sometimes like egg whites). Tonight, I had a very small clump in my underwear, tinged slight yellow. Can coughing cause preterm labor or dislodge the mucus plug? I have had three children, all full-term, no problems with preterm labor. I think that I have had this mucus mixed with leukorrhea much of the pregnancy but can't remember! Could it be just the increased mucus production (like in my sinuses too)?
Avatar n tn but spend anywhere between 2-8 hours coughing at night.. it is not a dry cough, in fact he seems to be bringing up a lot of mucus.. people have described it as an old mans cough and I would agree. it all started when he has a severe throat and chest infection... which cleared up with antibiotics, but the cough stayed.. this was 6 MONTHS AGO.. and he has not had one night since where he hasnt coughed. I have taken him to the doctors more times then i can remember..
Avatar m tn Same goes for our 5 year old give any type of milk before bed, 99% of the time she is up coughing. i said bedtime alot because thats usually only when the coughing happens, really kind of weird . Our 5 year old has chronic nasal problems and uses prescription nose spray. So is it really an allergy or something else??
Avatar n tn He was blowing mucus out his nose and mouth. Many times the children vomit up all their food and can't gain any weight, which is when they become dehydrated and end up hospitalized. It's very dangerous for young children, which is why we have vaccines for this. Not sure where your son is in his DPT sequence. If you'd ever see a movie of a child with this, believe me, you wouldn't even think about not having your child vaccinated.

Avatar n tn He takes Zyrtec syrup, and it clears it up completely. It could also be an allergy to milk or something, causing extra mucus. Reflux can also cause coughing.
Avatar n tn Every other minute or so I'm coughing up clear mucus and sometimes it's mixed with blood.My doctor has diagnosed me with acid reflux desease.I really don't think that's the problem because my husband has acid reflux desease and he's always complaining about how the acid is burning his esaphagus.I'm not experiencing that sympton.And besides, my doctor has prescribed zantac and I'm still having the symptoms.What type of medical condition do I have?
Avatar n tn But the mucus mixed with dust and bacteria don't always come down to your throat for you to cough it out, it accumulates and stays in there that is why your body continue to produce mucus to protect you. That mucus will come down to your throat night after night. Its good to rinse once you get home. And you should blow it out. My son didn't want me to rinse his nose, I had to shown him all the scary pictures on the web about nose infection then he let me do it for him.
Avatar m tn sir, I have been suffering from coughing problem for th last 5-6 years. some type of irritation in my lungs happens and after luch or dinner some sort of vomitting/white mucus comes out and ocassionaly also mucus comes out sometimes. I have consulted doctor both homeo and allopathic but the problem is not permanently curing. So, what is the sympton is it? what remedy can be taken and what food to avoid and which specialist doctor to consult?
Avatar n tn This time not only did the above happen but he is very feverish, coughing, tired, breathing heavily, have a rapid heart beat and bringing up heavy mucus. The latter affects started three days after the shot...the swelling happened immediately. I do not want to be too alarm if these are minor side affects but I do not want to procrastinate and wondered if besides giving him tylenol and cough syrup, and using cold compresses should I take him to a doctor.
Avatar m tn When I drink milk, my whole mouth is coated with a white colored mucus if the dairy is white and is brown if I consume chocolate. This mucus will eventually build up in my throat to the point I start coughing really bad and eventually vomit a stalactite shape mucus structure. I'm basically at the point where I can't eat any dairy at all for a while or else I will vomit all my food up with the mucus stalactite. If anyone can help me figure out what this is I would greatly appreciate it.
1285120 tn?1273755207 I take kapidex, Bentyl , Alkaline Drops( acid neutrilizer) and Carafate. Recently I have been throwing up stomach acid , have a foul taste in my mouth with nausea and coughing up stomach acid too. My Pulmonologist said that the acid reflux can back up into your lungs if you are overweight with a Hiatal Hernia which I am. My Gastroenterologist does not think at this time that I require surgery to fix my Hernia.
Avatar n tn , reflux meds, prilosec, anitibiotics if cold, and dry the upper respiratory up so no mucus drips. She also said coughing begets more coughing and once the cycle is set up hard to change. Dr. Karen Lahive - Faulkner Hospital, Boston, MA My alt. med doc, said MOLD toxicity and allergy. Also tested me for mycoplasma pneum. I tested positive. They are now (at year 2) doing the DNA PCR for mycoplasm... plus lyme (positive bands), etc... Look up Biofilm as well.
Avatar n tn could all these things be linked, could i have a hyper allergic reaction to something which triggers of the coughing, hte violent coughing inturn has weakend the pshinter muscle in my chest and produced the hernia? could the acid reflux or the gas given off by the extra acid be now triggering the violent coughing fits? and inturn then damaging my vocal cords?.
Avatar n tn does not recitfy the problem, a bronchoscopy will be ordered, to see if there may be a blockage. Apparently, this is common among young children, who sometime inhale small objects (eg peanuts, crayons, etc) with the result of ongoing strenuous coughing. She no longer has a fever and her appetite has returned, but her cough has worsened. She has coughing fits lasting 20-30 seconds and usually vomits as a result. Here are my questions (and thank you in advance for considering them!): 1.
Avatar n tn Both my children,have what seems to be the 3yr old boy started with it coughing until he turns blue and then vomiting nearly every time mainly mucus,now my 4yr old daughter with chronic asthma has it just as bad. I have taken them to the dr,in which he prescribed albuterol and rondec as well as steamy showers,but nothing seems to be working for them. It's breaking my heart to see them suffering so much. he has had it for almost 2 weeks and her a week.
Avatar f tn At least 3 times each night we both wake up (alternating times) not being able to breath, choking and gasping for air. We do produce some clear sticky mucus sometimes. Our airways are closing up while sleeping (inclined mind you). Also during waking hours maybe 3-5 times per day this happens. The rest of the time, we're just fine, even during exercise.
Avatar f tn On one occasion he was runnning around the house and began having a coughing attack and then threw up from the force of the coughing. Last winter (4 yrs old) he again began his battle with evening coughing in December after catching a cold (which may or may not be a cause). This lasted well into April. The worst part is the mornings would be a fit of coughs to clear himself.
Avatar m tn I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out. The last one about 2 years ago stopped me breathing in and out completely for 10 to 15 seconds and I thought I had bought it.
