Hi Dr. Julie,
I came across your blog while searching for a way to help my daughter with a daytime cough that has been going on for 8 weeks. She never appeared to have cold symptoms, but had a bad cough and spit yellow mucous. Was on antibiotics in July and it reduced a bit, now half way though another 21 day round. From the very beginning she never coughed at night after falling asleep. It now seems that she coughs mostly upon waking and then stops with a few coughs throughout the day. Some days are better than others. I read your comments on sinopulmonary reflex and wonder if that could be part of her issue. You mention the coughing won’t stop until the swelling reduces. What is the treatment to help reduce the swelling? The Dr. said her nasal passages are swollen and we have been using a prescription nasal spray for about a week. I do believe some of the coughing may have become habit, but there is definite phlegm in the morning. Any help is appreciated.
