DD has had a cough practically since birth normally coupled with a cold (nursery since 4 mths). I have been to (various) docs about 10 times over the last year and everytime they say her chest is clear its nasel secretions and will only prescribe asthma pumps (both preventive and immediate). I wont use the steroid pump and the immediate one never seems to make a difference. my husband has wanted to try and change her milk for ages which I have been against but the last couple of weeks she has thrown up a few times after coughing and it just doesnt seem to be going away! my poor dd. We started her on goats milk yesterday and she did throw up this am (despite a relatively clear night). i will give a couple more days but am I wasting our time?? will i then need to try Rice milk or Soya milk or shall I as my mum thinks just leave her alone and let her grow out of it (if it is an allergy). I hate the thought of messing her about.

hello! my dd2 had something like this, really distressing for us as she would cough herself awake most nights, had exactly the same asthma pumps etc, finally saw a specialist who gave us steroid nasal drops and it cleared up her cough in literally two days. I am very anti steroids as well, but this was miraculous, and we all sleep now!

Hi babblington - do you remember the name at all? I will defo ask about them! Do you still have to use the drops?

Sorry to take so long to replay! Betamethasone 0.1% she was supposed to use the drops for 6 weeks ish but she was completely cured in less than 7 days and we stopped using them. Haven't had a problem since. Good luck.
