My daughter coughs a lot at night time: Advice?

My little girl won’t stop coughing at night … she coughs herself almost sick. Been to the Drs and they’ve said there’s nothing wrong. I can’t just ignore it.

Try the vapor rub on her feet with socks. I know it sounds weird but I did it to my daughter the other night and didnt hear her cough once. :woman_shrugging:

I would get a second opinion. Post nasal drip, asthma, allergies… could be a lot of things. I love essential oils for diffusing in the air. Doterra has one called breathe that smells like Vick’s. Does wonders for us.

Keep her head elevated slightly, a cool mist humidifier next to her bed, Vicks Vapor rub on her feet with socks, a small teaspoon of honey(depending on age). I’ve been dealing with the same thing for over 4 months and it’s only at night

My son had this forever nighttime cough, he uses an inhaler now and no more cough.

Contact an allergist.

She may need a humidifier in her room. I used to have coughing spells at night too and this helps me a lot.

Allergies or calming down activating asthma. I have caughing asthma my daughter has sinus drainage allergies caught from drainage.

My son has severe asthma, we have to have allergy covers on his mattress and pillow plus have a fan running to push air for him. If the fan isn’t on he struggles for air because gas heat makes the house dry. You can also put a cool mist humidifier in the bedroom. Also try elevating the head of the bed just a little. It could also be reflux if they’re laying flat

Get a humidifier!! Game changer

get a humidifier for your home the air is to dry

Get a second opinion!!! You know your daughter best. My doctor missed something crucial with my daughter and kept saying it was nothing. Had I not gotten a second opinion we would be in a very bad spot right now. Trust your gut not the doctor.

Could be undiagnosed asthma. Ask your pediatrician for a referral to an allergist/asthma dr
