Anytime my 6 year old son has a cough/cold or even when he gets really upset and starts to cry, he gets so worked up that he makes himself gag and choke and many times will make himself puke. He will also break out in these little red spots all over his face that stick around for a couple days. Once he calms down he is exhausted and just wants to curl up with a blanket and sleep. Is this typical or should I be worried? Do other kids have this same problem? I feel like maybe there is something wrong with his lungs. He has a history of croup and gets it at least once a year. He also had pretty bad reflux as a baby.
