My 3.5 yr old son is having severe dry cough
(no fever or cold) from almost a month.
All the doctors say it is allergic cough
mainly due to cold. and have been prescribing the same meds with different names.
Ambrolite Levo; Ascoril LS+; levocytrizine/ montelucast; Budecort/ Levolin
nebulizers; Azithromycin; Clarithromycin; Lupituss; zerotuss; Prednisolone/ Decazor
But all these meds have failed to stop the cough over this one month. The cough usually gets bad at morning; evening and makes him vomit (please note that i live at a cold place, but we keep him indoors in a very warm room and keep a steamer running as well).
Please suggest me some cough suppressent which can cure or ATLEAST relieve his cough. How much zerotuss/ lupituss and steroid
(omnacotril/ decazor) can i give (currently 5 ml thrice a day, which does not help at all).
His X ray was also done which is also normal.
The patient profile got mixed up somehow. Please ignore the additional info section for medical history; known allergies and current meds. Instead consider the below please:
occasional allergic cough throughout this year, mainly dry cough
clarithromycin; Zerotuss; Montelucast; Decazor; Budecort.
cold air suspected to aggravate cough
