My 2 years old son has been coughing for the pass 2 months give or take, only at night about 3-5 AM. Dr kept saying its allergy,but no allergy med is helping him. We have humidifier and air filter on at night. Dr has been checking his ears and lungs no sign of cold/ sick or anything. This is starting to freak me out since its been 2 months already. Dr might recommend X-ray but I'm ver uncomfortable about that.
Pls share ur experience and advice.

I think all moms have kids, that said, I would be worried as well. Are there any smokers in your house? My sisters kids are like this, hacking themselves half to death all the time - their dr's keep saying it's bronchitis and shit. Hope you find an answer.

CHECK YOUR AIR FILTERS!  That's the number one way he could be getting dust mites and allergens in his system at home.

Oh lord. That's your edit? A mother [by definition] is someone that has given birth to at least one child. "Moms with kids" is funny because it is a complete reiteration. Sigh. You can be a mom without giving birth, to be clear, before anyone gets their panties in a bunch.

Asthma! My daughter does the same thing. She's almost 5 we saw a allergy specialist who ruled out all allergens and put her on a inhaler she takes before bedtime Pulmicort. Becuase of night time coughing she was getting very lousy sleep and had behavioral issues etc. She's always had the asthma part especially in the fall/winter months.

Is he having trouble breathing or is he just coughing? They didn't want to diagnose DS1 with asthma because they can't really test for it until he gets older, but they prescribed a nebulizer for him because every time he gets a cold, he gets wheezy.

I just realized how silly I sounded! Anyway, no smoker, the house is clean and new I washed all bed sheets and use plastic pillow case for him. I can think of anything else. I would hate for him to have an X-ray. Since he already had one when he was born. He doesn't cough during the day.

All moms have kid(s) facepalm

Hmmm you're adding moisture to the air. That could be an issue.
