Hello im new on here, just posted this on the general forum but then realised it would be best on here with you guys.
My son Joshua will be 3 yrs old in may, he has had a rough 3 years, he was diagnosed with craniosynositosis (premature fusing of the skull sutures) so underwent reconstructive surgery at BCH when he was 6 months old.
The reason im on here looking for advice is because the last 8 nights Joshua has been waking with a terrible cough, he coughs so much for at least 2 hours and has trouble getting hid breath with it.
what is puzzling us is that he is well in himself, not had a cold for 5 months (touch wood), no coughing at all in the day but as soon as night time comes, the cough rears its ugly head!
asthma runs highly in my family, my mum and 2 brothers suffer with it and did so terribly when they were children.
could josh be suffering from asthma?
he has no wheezing with it, also would it just flare up at night and nothing in the day?
thanks in advance
