Aibu to go to the doctor yet again

I feel like I've spent my last few months there constantly. Nearly every week! Dd was there last week with chickenpox as I was worried about her cough which started just before the pox. Gp said her chest was clear. Her spots have nearly all disappeared but she's still coughing. She's fine otherwise.
We're due to go on holiday tomorrow. Would I be unreasonable to just ask them to listen to her chest to put my mind at ease?

No I wouldn't take her but she is your daughter, do what you feel is right. coughs can linger for ages and as long as she is otherwise well it isn't anything to worry about. Make sure you have travel insurance and check there is a doctor at/near the hotel just in case.

Thanks everyone, I explained the situation and said I was unsure and they just said bring her in to see the nurse practitioner. For peace of mind mainly.
I kept reading that a cough should be watched closely with chickenpox as it can indicate a more serious problem. However she's not struggling to breathe or anything.
Anyway. I shall go then stop worrying and get ready for tomorrow.
