Is a continuous cough at three months of age normal for a baby?

My child seems to be immune to the infant's tylenol and his cough is getting worse. Any ideas?

  • First, tylenol has no effect on a cough. It's a pain killer that also reduces fever. That's it.

    Is a long running cough normal? No. But it can have many causes - a virual infection, reflux, allergies are some of the most common. In a baby this young, I'd call the doctor in the morning. Until then, run a humidifer in the room. That's about the only thing that helps.

  • My son had virus induced asthma when he was a baby. It would manifest itself as a cough that never went away. Have him checked out.

  • long term use of tylenol can be extremely damaging.
    the cough needs to be checked out by a doctor; it is probably an allergy.

  • I would make sure that there is no mold in your house wash the walls and her crib with a good cleaner. Then let it dry completely. I also have a good natural for infection and virus. Its patented too. Email me if you are interested.
