  • why was she on an antibiotic?
    is she drinking okay? can you use the nose syringe and suction out any mucous and do you have a vaporizer that you can use?

  • OK, I looked at your profile. If she is recovering from bronchitis I would take her temperature and call the doctor to report the way the cough sounds.

  • have her checked for asthma...my son was misdiagnosed with baby bronchitis...he was fine when on antibiotics then as soon as he was off of them he got sick again and again...i went to several diff doctors...and it took him to be almost hospitalized after 5 months of trying to find what was wrong with my son....i finally called his doctor and said "i think he has asthma" i got there and he was weazing so bad he had to be put on oxygen right then....then they had the nerve to tell me " dont let him get this bad again" i was enraged. i had been trying for months to get them and many other doctors to listen to me. had they listened to me about his symptoms, we would not have gone thru that. (sorry i started venting) any ways. have him checked. sounds just like how my sons started.

  • All medical questions should be called in to your pediatrician. There is no way we can know what is wrong with her and what for you to do.
