6 months ago my son got a very serious strep infection (bacteremia) that landed him in the hospital for a week. Ever since he has had recurring strep and ear infections. He recently had tubes put in his ears and so far his ears seemed to be doing better (4 weeks). But ever since the tubes were put in he has had a horrible cough. The cough is worse at night and keeps him up, it also causes him to throw up quite often. His physician tested for strep and it was negative, they also said that his lungs sounded clear as a bell. The nebulizer with albuterol or palmacort does no good at all so they have discontinued that, assuming that it is not asthma. They thought that it was possibly a viral infection in his through because there was some pus on his tonsils, but it is not getting better after 4 weeks. Any ideas? I am getting desperate on how to help my little one.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
