Lately my 5 year old is fine during the day but at night time he'll cough none stop in his sleep. Which of course wakes me up. I have done, vapor rub, cough strips, cough syrup, drink of water, propping up on 2 pillows. Nothing works. Is there anything someone can suggest or know what is going on?Answer Question

Change your A/C filter.. Is it dry there? Run the shower before bedtime or run a humidifier. Rather than medication this is what helps my kids; Make sure you wash his hair at night to get the pollen out of his hair...you dont want him rubbing his face in it on the pillow case at night, change his sheets weekly and wash in hot water, vacuum under his dressers and bed, wash his stuffed animals, dust his room, don't leave clothes that he has worn during the day in his room. Put vicks on his feet with socks on. I just vacuumed my entire house, even the ceiling, walls, ceiling fans, the corners of the carpet by the baseboards, curtains, washed rugs...this all stopped our problems.
I hope he feels better.
