Pediatrics/Chronic Cough 6 years old Boy
My son 6 year of age having chronic cough from more than 1 year.
Actually the Dr here diagnosed as allergic asthma. He is on singular tablet and Ventolin and seretide inhalers and nasonex nasal spray.
unfortunately he is not getting relief , his chest is always clear no wheezing at all. But he gets cough in bouts on exposure to cold , smoke and strong perfumes and also while playing sports games.
It sounds like this is either cough variant asthma or he may have undiagnosed GERD. I would like to be sure he has a normal chest XR and that he has no history of choking on something a year ago. I would treat him with high dose inhaled steroids and continue the singulair. If this didn't work and the cough persists, I would have him seen by a peds pulmonologist.
Sorry for the delay in responding. Got lost in the Christmas holiday.
Good luck, Dr. Olson
