Chronic Cough from more than 8 months for a 4yr old
Hi.. We live in Houston. My Son is of age 4yrs. He is struggling with Chronic cough from more than 8 months. Initially we thought it is due to allergies in Houston. We started using 'Children's Zyrtec' in the month of January 2018. Cough and Sneezing will stop for about 24 hours if we use Zyrtec. We went almost 6 times to Physician but he could not able to figure out the reason for the cough. Doctor suggested to meet allergies specialist and we did so. Doctor conducted Full blood allergies profile test, Allergies skin test but they didn't find any major reactions to allergies from my son's body.
So, the cough may not be due to allergies. But surprisingly, it will stop for 24 hours only if we use 'Zyrtec'. No other medication is helping. Doctors also suggested to use 'Zyrtec' for two more months.
It is very hard to see 4yr old coughing and sneezing most of the time. Can someone please help us in finding the reason.
