Common Questions and Answers about Infant coughing at night


Avatar m tn My 2 year old kid has been coughing most days at night? Anyone know what it could be? Anyone know how to get in touch with a pediatrician over the phone or web? Would not mind getting an opinion from home as my next appointment is not for a month.

Avatar m tn m a 23 year old male, who takes Singuliar, 10mg, daily for asthma symptoms. However for the past few nights, I have been wheezing and coughing in bed at night to the point it disrupts my sleep, leaving me dragging the next day. During the day I do not wheeze and cough, just laying down at night in bed. Should I go see my doctor, or is this something due to change in weather (it has become noticably cooler in this area the past couple days), or something the medication will correct in time?
Avatar n tn Hello Medhelp.. I've gotten sick /flu/fever 3 weeks ago..Usually my coughing and body aches last about a week..but my coughing has not gone away. I am a smoker for 9 years..but never experienced coughing like this. I cough severley only at night while I'm sleeping..but then the coughing gets better during the day. This coughing has been lasting 3 weeks..and the severe coughing at night which wakes me up has been about 4 days. Is this a sign of HIV or STD?

1194973 tn?1385503904 If she can stand it I would not give her tylenol until night or at all for 99, only unless you think it might go up when she is sleeping. THe fever will hep her body fight it off and taking away the fever keep sthe germ in the body. Also the web site has Elderflower that is great for fevers! Oh and the none dye tylenol is best as the color especially red can make some babies irritable, mad or give them a rash on the face or checks. OH dr sears web site has the tylenol and motrin dosage chart!

3166874 tn?1343999162 My elderly pug (13 years old) has been coughing at night. This doesn't seem to occur during the day or evening and only when she is laying in her bed. I have read other comments about this and cannot find anything that addresses this type of issue at night. I have contacted my vet and am waiting for a return call. I am fortunate to have a vet that makes house calls. I also have a 6 year old pug but she doesn't sleep with the older pug and has no symptoms similar to her older companion.
Avatar n tn I have a 3 month old that has a horrible cold and is constantly coughing due to sinus drainage. I've tried saline drops for her nose, but they don't seem to be helping. Does anyone else have any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Is the nocturnal cough (possibly due to laryngitis) the cause of the fever? Mucus is collecting behind my vocal cords. It causes coughing at night. In the evening I use asthma medication, but I do not have asthma. Could cortisone inhalation (Alvesco) in the evening cause nocturnal fever several hours later? In the morning and daytime my temperature is normal (I had some fever over a week ago). I have atrial fibrillation and, when walking, I have dyspnea posssibly due to respiratory infection.
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..

316994 tn?1259003438 ayla has a cold. she has been VERY congested, sneezing, coughing. Is there anything i can do? Shes a little over 3months.
1280088 tn?1432049934 In my experience - I have a nearly 4 year old and a 5 month old - most infant sleep disturbance can be blamed on teething or growth spurts, at least once the child is past the age of needing to wake at night for feedings.
676912 tn?1332812551 I just commented on your post on FB but I will say it here too. Turn your shower on hot and get your bathroom steamy. Bring her in the bathroom with you for about 5 minutes at a time. It should help clear her up some.
Avatar n tn Your baby is little and night time feeding is very common at 3 months. My other son that had no feeding/weight issues would feed during the night at least once until about 10 months as well. I am just going to say that you may be tired -------- really tired========== but this period of time will pass and your life will go back to normal. My son that ate every 1.5 to 2.5 hours did not start sleeping through the night until 16 months.
94902 tn?1330479667 I got on the board just now to post the same questions ladybugbob! Jack was snoring and coughing and hacking through the night. When I checked on him at lunch (he stays home with DH who works from home on Tue and Thur) I noticed he was coughing more and had yellow crud stuck under his little nose. I've been at work worrying about him ever since and googling anything I can about infant colds.
Avatar f tn If you get it after delivery your baby is still protected since parents are at the highest risk of spreading pertussis to an infant. If you're immunized even after delivery the risk of your baby getting pertussis lowers considerably.
Avatar f tn / i didnt kno y i took him to the ER and to his 1week check up n they didnt seem to care that he was Coughing a bunch n sneezing n very congested!

Avatar n tn My eight year old son has had episodes of vomiting at night for several years. He will vomit one night a week for three or four weeks straight and then not again for several months. Then he'll vomit three nights in a row...only one time per night.... and then not again for another few months. We thought it may be a food allergy, we noticed that he seemed to do better when not drinking juice, but then he won't have had juice for several months and he'll have another episode.
Avatar f tn Have you been tested for TB? Usually the fever goes up at night and you get fatigue and cough. But, also a chest infection would give you this high of a fever. So getting a sputum sample for culture to see if have an infection would be a good idea. Did you or do you have a sore throat too or just the lung symptoms? Did you ever see white spots or pus in the back of your throat? It doesn't sound like you had strep throat when they tested you for it.
Avatar n tn i wake up in the middle of the night coughing non stop for about thirty minutes...all the while i have clear dripping from my nose. Then i fall asleep and i am fine. what is this?
Avatar m tn She still is coughing so much at night we are getting very little sleep. She was on a higher dosage but it left her so lethargic she had no quality of life and was still coughing. She is back on the lower dosage and seems more her old self but the coughing never changes. Has anyone else had any success in calming the coughing at Night? My husband and I both have very demanding jobs and the lack of sleep is having an effect. We love her dearly and want her last days to be happy ones.
Avatar f tn I still have coughing at nights and in mornings. I have been thinking whether I have been suffering from pneumonia (with only slight fever). (I do have chronic sinusitis.) I have dyspnea, it has not vanished, today it has been bad. I have to drink lots of water, because I tend to become dehydrated. - Drinking water has sometimes abolished pain and some other symptoms.
