My son is 3 years old and has situs inversus. When he was tested for pcd at 3 months old the results came back that he had some sticky patches and cilia on the slow end of normal however not enough to be classed as pcd.
He has not had a chest infection yet and generally his nose runs clear. But it runs like a tap and his cough sounds horrible and productive.
He does have a constant cough and runny nose but when he has the cold the poor wee soul really suffers and struggles to clear it. The tixylix and other cough medicines just don't do anything. He could be doing with some mucous cough medicine but everything in the pharmacy is age 12 and over.
Firstly is there any recommendations for over the counter cough mixtures to help him.
Secondly is there any other remedies that would help. I don't have any special physio as he technically doesn't have pcd. He is an active boy though and does a lot of running about.
Thirdly is there such a thing as a mild case of PCD and is it worth getting tested again?
We live in Scotland so it's not easy to get to a special centre.
I feel so sorry for him and hate to think that any long lasting damage is being done.
Thanks in advance
