Baby has cold, now his cries sound very hoarse

The Dr just keeps saying there is no need to bring him in because he has no fever. UGH

He has a cold, and now his cry is so hoarse and pitiful. He is eating, also is spitting up but always has spit up. I am using the humidifier, putting vicks on his feet with socks, and giving him tylenol. He still feels bad but this new hoarse-ness in his voice is freaking me out. Any input?

Oh, he is 4 and 1/2 months old.

Have you tried sitting with him in the bathroom with the shower on full blast hot and breathing the steam? Thats all I can think of. Good luck. Hope he feels better soon.

I have, and that really helps with the stuffy nose.  But whay do you think his cry sounds so hoarse?  OH and thank you for talking to me.

By hoarse do you mean croupy sounding?  If so, he needs to go in and he needs Orapred to reduce the inflammation in his throat.

I think it may be that croupy sound, but it isnt in the cough...its only when he cries...should I still keep asking them to see him?

Is he coughing?  If so, that could be a reason he is hoarse.

Call your doctor back and tell them that you would really put yourself at ease if they could see you.

Keep pushing the fluids.  Keep the humidifier running. 

We are fighting colds in our house and all the kids are whiny, but not running fever....it's been a long day!

He was coughing earlier, but not now.  I think I will call them  AGAIN.
