Hi i am new to this site but am at my wits end trying to find answers to help my daughter. If anyone could add anything to try I would be so appreciative. For the past year my daughter has had a chronic cough which happens day and night. We have tried inhalers, montelukast, neoclarityn with no luck. This all started after catching bronchiolitis in Jan last year and then this resulted in my daughter developing a chest infection every 3 weeks after a cold. Blood tests and sweat test have come back fine. In Sept a consultant advised it was protracted bacterial bronchitis and prescribed a 1 month dose of co-amoxyclav. For 3 months the cough went completely. My daughter has now caught her first cold and although she had croup and got over it she can't shake this cough off again. So far we are on day 23 with coughing day and night. We are shattered from lack of sleep and worry and no idea where to go. We rehomed one of our dogs, bought air humidifiers/purifiers, asthma hoover, anti-allergy bedding all with no luck. My daughter is 2 in March and I think the doctors are hoping she will grow out of it but it's a long time to wait and hope.
