My 2 year old has a hacking cough. It's almost like a smokers cough, but nobody ever smokes around him or anything. A few times over the weekend he has woken up in the middle of the night choking on this cough. He has no other symptoms, not even a runny nose. Could it still be a cold? Should I be concerned? It's been about 3 days now and still no other symptoms.

  • I haven't called yet because it was the weekend, and I wasn't sure if this was just a cold or allergies or something and I didn't want to overreact. Plus other than waking him up it doesn't seem to be affecting him at all he even coughs and then says I'm ok mommy lol. But I guess I should call if it could be something serious.
