My 18 month old has had a nasty cough for 2 weeks. About a week ago I took her to the doc and he said that she sounded fine and that she just has a cold and he prescribed some cough medicine to help with the coughing at night.
Well now, a week later, the coughing is worse at night, she doesn't cough much during the day and up til today she didn't have any other issues. This morning she woke up VERY cranky and had a fever of 100...I gave her tylenol and it's slowly dropping and she's playing like normal.
Should I take her? I get upset because this happens A LOT seems like she always has a bad cough and it always leads to a fever and I take her and they say the same thing every time, that she has an upper respiratory infection and they give her cough medicine and tell me to give her tylenol.
What should I do?
