My Son is getting sick again :( & it always turns into a cough.....question?

Like a hacking cough. He had walking pneumonia in Jan. Started off with pink eye then an ear infection. Now he's coughing again. I thought it may just be allergies but now he's running a very low grade fever for 3 days (99.6-100.6) only at night.

My question is, have your kids had continual coughing spells when they were sick because now I am thinking maybe he has asthma but the fever throws me?? I hope he's not developing pneumonia again. If I bring him into the Pediatrician too early on they'll just say it's a cold until he develops fluid in the lungs then they'll prescribe an antibiotic. Last time the coughing started, I brought him in 3 times until finally they heard fluid in his lungs & prescribed an antibiotic.

Opinions or ideas? Thanks!

  • I would probably wait a bit longer. My grandchildren have had several episodes this spring like what you are describing, and they got over each of them on their own.
