My daughter has a really bad cough, what can I do?

She is 2 1/2 yrs. She just keeps coughing and coughing. It's like every ten seconds she coughs a lot and then she will get to rest for a few seconds and then start again. I have given her dimatap and her albuterol inhaler, but they don't seem to be working.

  • Is it a "productive" cough? Does she bring up any phlem? If so, leave her alone for awhile. If she has a "crackling" sound in her chest when you listen to her back, she has pneumonia and needs a doctor ASAP.
