Common Questions and Answers about Toddler coughing like seal


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 I have had a seal like barking cough for almost 2 months now too.Have had 2 different antibiotics, chest Xrays . Finally to a lung specialist. She too suggested what REB 51 said ,perhaps it is cough variant asthmas, this kind of asthma has no weezing just coughins and can lasts for months. I sound like a seal, my throat is sore and my voice goes out. I have to take 40 MG of prednisone for a few weeks, an albuterol inhaler too.
7732297 tn?1397446837 So my 4yr old has a cold:( she is so congested and coughing and getting the sweats. Ive been giving her cold & flu medicine for the cough & runny nose then tylenol for the fever/sweats but i wanted to know if there were any home remedies that you mamas used to help your babies feel better?
Avatar f tn seems like this cold will never nose is runny, I keep coughing, and my throat is starting to hurt from coughing..please help.!!
Avatar n tn It sounds like either allergies or reflux triggering the running nose which triggers the coughing. You need to know and treat the cause. Asthma is also a possibility. God bless.
Avatar f tn You may have tonsillitis or tonsiliths- tiny stones that form in your tonsils and adenoids from trapped food that basically fossilized. It's also possible you have a glossopharyngeal fold dysfunction. If it happens after swallowing (food/liquids/or pills), see the following: I have this same problem but only with pills and no issue with food or liquids. The smaller the pill, the higher the likelihood it will be stuck in my throat for the foreseeable future.
Avatar n tn Yes I agree with your grandson's pediatrician,there has been a lot of stomach bugs going round amongs't children this year .Keep him hydrated with water and pedialite is he coughing ?
Avatar n tn s taking?? Has the doctor ruled out RSV?? My daughters never had it but, his symptoms (coughing for 4 weeks) sounds alot like it. If that's the case he really should be getting breathing treatments, they're much more effective. Were you given med for the cough the first time you took him in?? Could it be an allergic reaction to the meds?? It does take their little bodies to work through viruses longer than us. Ask to make sure your son isn't getting dehydrated.
Avatar f tn Over the past couple of days the runny and stuffy nose symptoms have continued and the coughing is getting worse. The coughing is especially worse during the night. His stools don't look exactly normal either. They have been darkened and sometimes have a really dark reddish tint to them. He also has not been eating as much and as well as he normally was, but he is still drinking as much as usual. I am starting to feel that there might be something a little more serious going on here.
Avatar f tn I had an Angiogram done on March 30th, there was an Angio-seal used, and I was given a card to carry with me for the next 90 days. I had an angiogram done in 2005, which was done the old way, lay for 5 hours after and never looked back. Never needed a painkiller or anything. This time, I can't walk without pain and am in alomost constant pain today from above the site of entry, with a very warm sensation around the site, but to look at the wound, all looks just the same as before.
Avatar n tn My 2 year old had pneumonia 3 months ago and made a full recovery after heavy duty antibiotics... a week ago he developed a cough that had him coughing about three times in a row every 4 or 5 hours. About 3 days ago he started coughing at night. He would wake up about midnight cough 3 or 4 times hard and repeat about every three hours. Last night he coughed about every 1 to 2 hours and coughed so hard he almost threw up several times.
Avatar f tn I have a 3 yr old toddler who for 3 nights in a row is waking up crying..she doesn't seem coherent..but she is swallowing and swallowing quite a bit more than normal...and she coughs..a bit but not I just happened to check her pulse and it seemed high to me...when you check it you should count until the time has reached 15 seconds? Well is that the correct way to check it because if it's 30 seconds it's way too high...something like 400bpm..I need help!!
Avatar f tn We used the holster one piece and now are trying one piece with the vent. The one piece with vent has an extra 'band aid' type seal around the wafer. The one piece with vent does not - I am scared it is going to pop off - am I missing something? New to this - thanks!
Avatar f tn Well today I feel so much worse than I did on Monday. I am having coughing fits to where I almost pass out, still super dizzy (even when not coughing) and my throat is even more sore and I hardly can talk (kids are enjoying that part lol) I think I have bronchitis. So glad I go see my primary doctor tomorrow. Are any of you ladies experiencing this?
Avatar n tn My poor baby is tired and fussy every time he tries to fall asleep he will start coughing up all the phlegm and eventually throw up i tried letting him fall asleep in my arms that way his head will be raised so when he coughs he wont choke or something..

Avatar f tn So my daughter has had trouble with vomiting 3-5 nights a week since she was a toddler (she is almost 11). She has been diagnosed with Asthma and a few environmental allergies. Her allergist stated that the vomiting is due to the asthma. However, I am starting to suspect the opposite may be true. I know vomiting is not good for her esophagus. She does not experience pain before vomiting.
287071 tn?1365192513 His runny nose turned to coughing and has turned to wheezing today. We have a humidifier going in his room but what else can we do to help out? When he was eating dinner he was stopping to cough and his little face was turning red b/c he was coughing so hard. How do we know when he has RSV? I just put him to bed for the night and his respiration rate is about 54 breaths per minute. It seemed his breathing was quicker than I thought it should have been.
1042423 tn?1260994959 Hi. I recently tripped and fell last Saturday. I was a little sore, but didn't think too much about it. Apparently, it was much worse than I thought because I went and got an xray today and found out that I broke a rib. I'm pretty clumsy and have had some pretty hard falls before, but never broken a bone in my life. Anyways, the Dr just gave me some pain meds and put a brace around my ribcage, and then sent me on my way. He said there really wasn't anything else that could be done.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with a broken rectal seal and want to know if I should see a gastroenterologist or a GYN to have it repaired.How do I find a specialist to do the repair?
Avatar n tn i was told today by obgyn i got rectal seal whatis it andwhat caused it and is ther any danger of it going further
Avatar f tn In the hospitals they changed antibiotics 5 times and did 5 xrays. After 2 weeks she has started coughing and wheezing after running and playing. This has occurred 4 times both indoors and outside. Could she have gotten asthma due to the prolonged lung condition? Is it possible that with all of the antibiotics her lungs were damaged? Should I keep her from getting too worked up and running around for a while in hopes that perhaps her lungs just need some rest?
