DS,4, has had a horrible hacking cough for days... well, on and off really since we moved back to VA but it triple in intensity the past few days. His doc says it is just allergies and post nasal drip and not much can be done for him. He prescribed a nasal spray (yeah, that goes over with K like a lead balloon!!) But says it can take up to a week to see any difference. Biggest problem is we live in a studio hotel room so while HE can sleep through the nocturnal hacking fits, I can't!! I have tried Delsym (doc said we could try but he doubted it would work -- it doesn't), elevated head, humidifier, air purifier and even the Vicks trick. Nothing is working:( any other ideas??
