My daughter has a constant cough and vomiting

When my daughter was born she was hospitalized with phnemonia and was diagnosed with acid reflux . she has also been diagnosed with baby asthma . Since last year she has been sick constantly with bronchittis and cold. In the recent months she has been coughing constantly which leads to vomitting. It most occurs at night like 3-4 times. I have taken her to the doctor and they tell all is well. I am very concerned b/c she is a very petite child and when she vomits she sometimes turns all red, sweats, and her stomach starts making noises likse she has eaten in a long time. What can be wrong with her?

Hi Ozuna,

The vomiting can be due to the clogged up secretions (phlegm) in the throat which will be difficult for her to swallow it or bring it out which leads to retching and vomiting. She requires humidified air in the form of saline nebulization to bring out the phlegm or to liquidify it. saline nasal drops can be used as well 3-4times/day to reduce nasal congestion. I feel you need to consult a good child specialist/chest physician and get the child treated.
