Second opinion on child with cough for 5 weeks
My 4year old has a constant cough for 5 weeks now,have inhaler,have steroids and antibiotics,been to the doctors 5 times this month,its causing him discomfort,and probably his diaphragm,just looking for a second opinion,and how can i stop it from causing him upset.
I think he need to be examined thoroughly with investigations such as Chest X Ray to determine a cause. Sometimes acute bronchitis may last for sometime.
