Pediatrics/Post nasal or asthma


Hi, I have a 3 year old who got flu in November, cleared up fine but coincidence or not seemed to be extremely stuffy after making throat clearing noises during the day, and an occasional cough at nigh, almost like choking and wet. We put a humidifier in room since our humidity was22%. We also started to use nasal saline solution 2-3 times a day.  Dr. Thought it was some rhinitis. Things are much better, however on occasion, maybe 1-2 times a week she will give a single cough 1-2 times during night, not a coughing spell, just a single dry cough. Myquestion is what is typical of asthma cough at night. She runs fine during day. No cough, no wheeze, nothing. Does it sound like post nasal drip or asthma? The cough at night is just one cough.

if she does have some symptoms related to nose right now, all looks like a PND which settles with NS gargles or inhalation and attimes may need levocetrizine. discuss with your doctor for a prescription.

Asthma cough will be more so early morning too .. with fresh breeze.. child may get uncomfortable33 or start feeling choked or stuck in chest while breathing, all kids need not cough or wheeze.
